Update from the 2014 CALI Conference

You probably have heard of CALI Lessons and CALI Awards.  But CALI does a lot more than hand out certificates to students with the best grades.  For example, CALI’s eLangdell project offers free law school textbooks as an alternative to expensive casebooks.  CALI also works with Chicago-Kent’s Access to Justice  to help develop the project software.

In addition to these projects, CALI also hosts an annual law school technology conference.  Last year, the conference was held at Chicago-Kent.  This year, Harvard Law School was the host.

At the conference, presenters discussed everything from cutting-edge tech hacks to using technology in the classroom.  Be sure to view the sessions by Chicago-Kent staff on the Access to Justice clinical project and the latest updates from Oyez.

Our librarians were also featured speakers.  Emily Barney talked about creating student organization websites; she and Debbie Ginsberg presented tips and tricks for Gmail and Google Drive.

The sessions will soon be available to view on CALI’s YouTube channel.

Next year’s conference will be in Denver.  But you don’t have to travel that far to get the latest updates in legal technology.  The ABA Techshow will be held in Chicago on April 16-18, 2015. Be sure to check the show’s website for heavily-discounted student rates!
