CALI Lessons for Finals Prep

As exam anxiety begins permeating the atmosphere in the Law Library, we’d like to suggest a resource that might alleviate some of your fears – CALI lessons.

What are CALI Lessons?
CALI lessons are a group of over 800 computer-based, interactive tutorials written by law faculty and librarians.

What is the format of the CALI tutorials?
The format of the individual lessons varies according to the educational objectives of the author. Some authors use the setting of a simulated trial to provide students with an opportunity to test their understanding of an area of law. Other lessons drill students through a series of questions requiring them to identify relevant issues and apply recently learned concepts.

How to Access CALI Lessons:
CALI lessons are available on CD-Rom, but we recommend using the up-to-date online versions found at Register at using our school’s authorization code which you can get at the Reference Desk or by contacting us at

Law Dawg of the Month: Quinn

This month's Law Dawg is Quinn. Her favorite things are her yard, burrowing under covers and pointing out birds to her person, 3L Rachel Lambert, who credits Quinn with keeping her sane during law school.

Law School Community: Please send your Law Dawg submissions to and remember that your cats, birds, fish, horses, and more are all Law Dawgs!
