The CALIcon Conference is one of the longest-running legal education conferences in the United States. The conference brings together law school faculty, librarians, IT professionals, and administrators to share ideas, innovations, experiences and best practices in legal education/technology that you can use at your law school. It is eclectic, engaging, fun and well-catered. Don't miss out on this opportunity!
THE 30TH ANNUAL CALI CONFERENCE FOR LAW SCHOOL COMPUTING® RETURNS TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN! JOIN US JUNE 4TH & 5TH, 2020 AT CHICAGO-KENT COLLEGE OF LAW IN CHICAGO IL FOR THIS SPECIAL 30TH ANNIVERSARY VERSION OF CALIcon! Visit the #CALIcon2020 website.

AGENTS OF INNOVATION
Great ideas, new technology, and innovative teaching methods are all part and parcel of the 30th Annual CALI Conference for Law School Computing®, but nothing is easy and making it work in our home institutions is up to us. We must be our own Agents of Innovation. “Agency” is a particularly appropriate word. We must give agency to our students so that they can construct their own educational journeys, we must give agency to our faculty through tools, websites, content, and support so they can teach at the top of their talent and we must be agents of change in legal education to build a better justice system. CALIcon is the community of legal education agents - staff, faculty and law librarians - sharing experiences, discussing projects, demoing tech. Come join us.
Who Attends CALIcon?
Our attendees are a mixture of law professors, law librarians, and library directors, law school IT staff and law clinic faculty. We are also beginning to see attendees from the legal technology world. They are early-adopters, socially connected and highly influential in technology purchasing decisions. We expect 250- 350 attendees this year.
Who Exhibits at CALIcon?
CALIcon exhibitors have traditionally been those in the education software and legal research industries. However, with the increasing emphasis on creating “practice-ready law students," we are also beginning to see companies from the legal practice world use CALIcon as a way to introduce themselves to the new market.
Sessions are all 1 hour long, with 30-minute breaks between each to allow for networking, conversation, reflection and, of course, snacks! The sessions range from beginner to advanced and cover a wide range of topics, from Assessment to Video Technology and many topics in between. The sessions are conducted by real people sharing real experiences creating, using, designing and implementing technology in support and practice of legal education.
