We’re just about at the half-way point for the Fall Semester, which for law students means it’s time to get serious about understanding and organizing class materials and notes. Remember – no matter how smart you are, you’re not going to be able to learn all of this stuff the night before your final exam.

Sorry, that's just not how law school works.
Has this happened to you? You're settling in for a nice long session on CALI to study (or maybe you're a professor getting ready to create some LessonLinks.) You go to log into the site and....password denied.

Does your law school have a Library Fair? Or a Database Day? How about a Faculty Brown Bag Series? Or are you in a metropolitan area with some other law schools and you want an excuse to meet with the faculty and staff of them?
CALI WILL BE THERE!
CALI is happy announce the second round of the A2J Author® Course Project!
If you haven’t been warned yet, law school exams are not like undergraduate exams. If you were able to get by with cramming the night (or even week) before finals, unfortunately that’s not going to work now. Even if it did work for your exams, that’s not the way to retain knowledge – and you’re going to want to remember the law for the bar exam and your future career!
The past few weeks have been busy. So many things to do, so many new people to meet, new classes and new schedules. Is there something that you’re forgetting? Something like, oh, I don’t know…..
