It’s Never Too Early in the Semester to Start Taking CALI Lessons

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!

Start Law School Off Right!

Did you know CALI has resources that not only help you learn the law, but also ones that help you learn how to be a better student? It’s true!

Law School Materials for Success, written by Dean Barbara Glesner Fines,  is an book and podcast series filled with tips and tricks to make the law school experience as painless as possible.

CALIcon14 is a Wrap!

caliconYes, another CALIcon has come and gone. Thank you so much for attending! I kept hearing the phrase “my people” in sessions and hallways of CALIcon and that’s ultimately what CALI and CALIcon is about – Community. And we couldn’t have one without you.

CALI Website Launch Delayed – Now Scheduled for June 11- 12

As we work to put the final touches on the first redesign of the CALI website in over 5 years we want to make sure that everything works and that all of the features you count on are working properly. Over the course of this week it became apparent that everything wouldn’t be ready in time to launch the new website on June 2 & 3 as planned. Rather than going ahead with a site that we knew wasn’t quite ready we made the difficult decision to push back the launch of the redesigned website to June 11 & 12, 2014.
