CALI email helpline: calitech@cali.org

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction is a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit consortium of law schools that researches and develops computer-mediated legal instruction and supports institutions and individuals using technology in legal education.

Supplemental multimedia computer lessons, designed to enhance class teaching, were developed by CALI and add an element of interactivity to traditional classroom education. Approximately 300 CALI computer lessons are available, covering a large topical array. CALI is available on all law school PC's. Students may run lessons from our website, purchase a CALI CD, run lessons from the web, download lessons from computer workstations for home installation, or download lessons from CALI.

An analysis of student use regarding computer aided instruction is that the students in the course became active participants in their course work. The computerized interaction and electronic mail communications had the effect of galvanizing even normally reluctant participants.

Registration instructions are available on the Law School Intranet.
