#CALIcon2020 Call for Presenters

The theme for this year’s conference is…


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.Unknown Object

For 30 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 http://2020.calicon.org/propose-a-session/ , log in (remember to create an account), and fill out the form. Sessions need to be submitted by Friday March 6, 2020. All sessions need to be submitted through the #CALIcon2020 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 6, 2020 voting will be opened and will remain open until Friday March 20, 2020. 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 27, 2020 if their session is accepted. The listing of accepted sessions will be posted on the conference website on March 27, 2020.
