CALI to Help You Study

CALI (The Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction) is a non-profit consortium that focuses on computer legal instruction. Most members are U.S. law schools.

Where can you get access to CALI? The easiest way is from the law library’s homepage; under “Quicklinks,” click CALI. To create a CALI login, click the link for “Authorization Code” under “Quicklinks” and follow the steps.

What can I use CALI for? All 1L classes are covered via CALI lessons, as are the vast majority of upper-level ones. You can also search for lessons based on a casebook or author (professor). Searching by casebook assures that the lesson will be based on the same casebook used in your class.

CALI also offers a large number of free ebooks, which are authored by law school professors, including C|M|Law professor Deborah Geier.

Finally, CALI has a great search feature. The search box is located in the upper-right corner of the screen and will yield lessons, ebooks, and blog posts on the searched topic.
