Frequently Asked Questions - Registration

Registration is very easy and should take about 2 minutes.    Before you get started you need two things: (1) Your school’s authorization code and (2) an email address.  Yep, that’s it!

Okay, to start you will go to www.cali.org.  In the top right hand side of the page, there is a link to register. (Shown below.)  Click that or alternatively you can just go right to www.cali.org/register.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That will take you to the registration page.  It looks like this:

Fill out the fields with red aterisks in the form to create your account.

Some things to keep in mind when creating an account:

  1. Make sure your authorization code is accepted by the site.  You’ll know it is when you are asked to pick a graduating class date.  You may have to click outside of the box to get the process started.  It usually takes just a few seconds, but during the back to school rush, sometimes it may take up to a minute.
  2. You can use any valid email address you have access to. You do not need to use your law school email address.
  3. Use a valid email address.  We generally don’t email students unless it is a site maintenance emergency, but if you forget your password, the system sends out an email for you to reset it.

That’s pretty much it.  Register once and then for the rest of your law school career you can use CALI lessons as often as you like.  If you have any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us!  We are here to help you get through law school.

The registration process is the same for all users. The authorization code provides the differing levels of access on the CALI site. To register:


  1. There is a link titled "register" in the dark green bar on the top of the website.
  2. Fill out the form provided. You will need to chose a username, password and provide an email address.
  3. You will also need to provide the CALI Authorization Code for your institution. If you do not have the code, your institution's Authorization Code contact can be found on this list. CALI is unable to provide authorization codes over the phone or via email. You will have to get it from your school representative. They are also sometimes kept in the library or on school intranets.
  4. After typing in the Authorization Code, be sure to hit enter or click the cursor away from the box, as this will initiate the authorization process. Make sure you have a Faculty Authorization Code. This will allow you to use special Faculty Tools on the CALI.
  5. Fill out the rest of the form and click the "create a new account" button at the bottom of the webpage.

CALI Lessons are a great tool for students throughout the semester - not just as finals crunch time! We encourage members to give students their authorization codes in the beginning of the school year so that they can immediately use CALI. CALI member schools may give admitted students the CALI authorization code and access to CALI Lessons prior to the start of class if the student has given the school a tuition deposit.

No problem.  Please email feedback@cali.org and we can fix your account.  Be sure to include your username or email address in the message.
