CALI Reviser Project

**As of April 2016, most lessons in legal research and writing have been revised. The Reviser project will launch Phase 2 in another year when we again review and revise the library. Please contact Deb Quentel if you have any questions.**

CALI Authors can retire or find themselves unable to keep their lessons up to date. But the law, as we all know, continues to change. So we're looking for law professors - or librarians for legal research and writing lessons - to adopt an orphaned lesson and revise it as their own so that the lesson accurately reflects changes in the law.

Why become a CALI Reviser?:

  • You get a shared authoring credit, listed in OCLC.
  • It's a great introduction to authoring CALI Lessons. The structure of the lesson is already in place, so it's just a matter of making edits where updates are necessary; a perfect way to learn our CALI Author lesson authoring software without having to build the lesson from the ground-up.
  • A modest honorarium may be available to you as a Reviser.
  • You get a cool CALI (re)Visor.


Current lessons in need of Revisers:

If you are a good candidate to become a Reviser (or revisor as we're also spelling the project name to reflect the cool visors!) for any of the following lessons, please review the Guidelines below and contact CALI. 


2L-3L Upper Level Topics


Legal Research and Writing:

  • In summer 2014 we're tackling a review (and where necessary a revision) of all 950+ CALI lessons. There is something for everyone to review and revise. Please contact us if you want to be part of this project. Thanks!

Basic Guidelines to Become a Revisor / Reviser

  • We are currently looking for law librarians at CALI member schools to adopt and revise a legal research lesson. 
  • To initiate the reviser process, please email Deb Quentel. Include your school affiliation, and the title of the lesson that you'd like to adopt.
  • Deb will trade emails with you to establish the level of revision necessary and discuss details about the process and honorarium.
  • Additional titles may be available. Please contact Deb.
