CALIcon Conference

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 others are doing this.

The CALI Conference is one of the only places where law faculty, law librarians, tech folks, edtech and distance learning staff come together to share ideas, innovations, experiences and best practices that you can use at your law school.  It is eclectic, engaging, fun and well-catered.  Don't miss out on this opportunity!

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.

Informative 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!
