CALI Lessons = Assessment

Are CALI Lessons as useful to Faculty as they are students?  You bet your sweet assessment they are!

CALI Lessons have a reputation as being "just a study aid" for law students.  While that is indeed a function that they serve, they can also be a powerful assessment tool for faculty.

Mid-Semester Blues….

6145170190_d37fbf2c4e_zWe’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.

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.

The CALI Roadshow

CALI WILL BE THERE!

CALI WILL BE THERE!

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!
