Agents of Innovation

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.

The 30th Annual CALI Conference for Law School Computing returns to where it all began! Join us June 4th & 5th, 2020 at Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago IL for this special 30th anniversary version of CALIcon!
