CALIcon18 Call For Presenters

The theme for this year’s conference is…
Engaging Law Students With Tech

Kids born in 2000 are now entering college. Who are these people coming to law schools in 2018? How do we engage them? Time and attention are the new scarcities. Traditional legal education curriculum and materials are not designed to compete for the time and attention of modern millennials. Sometimes, it’s about the tech and almost always it’s through some kind of tech-enabled system that we must engage. Find out how CALI and law schools are doing this.

For over 25 years, CALIcon has organized its schedule at nearly the last minute in order to bring the most relevant and up-to-date presentations to attendees. This year is no different and we are looking for law school faculty, librarians, and technologists with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects, and useful advice. Come and share and be challenged. If you are willing and able to speak, your conference registration fee is just $95!

All sessions are 1 hour long with 30 minute breaks between sessions. Almost everything will be recorded and posted online.

To propose a session, just visit, log in (remember to create an account), and fill out the form. Sessions need to be submitted by Friday March 2, 2018. All sessions need to be submitted through the CALIcon18 website.

We are going to use community voting to help with selecting sessions this year. Your votes let us know which sessions you would like to see on the conference agenda. Starting on Friday March 2, 2018 voting will be opened and will remain open until Friday March 16, 2018. The number of votes for a session will be taken into consideration as part of the session acceptance process and to help with scheduling. To vote you will just need to visit the conference website and vote for the sessions you would like to see on the agenda. You do not need to be registered for the conference to vote.

We will notify speakers via email by March 30, 2018 if their session is accepted. The listing of accepted sessions will be posted on the conference website on March 30, 2018.
