The CALIcon Conference is one of the longest-running legal education conferences in the United States. The conference brings together law school faculty, librarians, IT professionals, and administrators to share ideas, innovations, experiences and best practices in legal education/technology that you can use at your law school. It is eclectic, engaging, fun and well-catered. Don't miss out on this opportunity!
The CALIcon19 theme is...
“A fundamental change in an individual's or a society's view of how things work in the world.”
The way we think about legal education is changing and not just at the edges. The crash of 2008, the collapse of law school applicants and the access to justice gap have inspired law schools to launch new programs to compete in this shifted world. Incubators, Innovation Clinics, Hackathons, Distance Learning, Academic Success, Learning Outcomes, Education Analytics …. we are doing different things and doing things differently. Almost all of these have a technology component too and so are relevant for this year’s conference. What is your law school doing? What should you be doing? Come to CALIcon19 to share your plans and discuss the new shifted present tense of legal education.
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.
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 the quality of video and content will vary greatly. Have fun!
