THEME:  The Changing Rhythm of Legal Education

Change continues to pulse through legal education. The patterns and flow of legal education are shifting as law students, law faculty, law schools, and law practice adjust to the dynamic environment. The challenge of new standards for legal education and new technology for law practice are part of the new rhythms facing our community. CALIcon17 seeks to explore these challenges, examining how new standards and technologies and the dynamic environment are changing the rhythm of legal education.

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.

Educational Sessions

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.

CALI Conference Video Archives on YouTube

Our conference video archives are now available on YouTube. We didn't edit or check for relevance. We simply posted everything we could find, so quality of video and content will vary greatly. Have fun!
