About the Conference:

Declining applications and the legal marketplace recession creates a more complex and competitive market for legal education and lawyers.  Many of the fixes have a technology component like distance learning, formative assessment, virtual law practice, law practice tech, document and process automation to name a few.  Many technologies that have proven themselves in other places are finally being looked at for legal education and law practice – they are no longer dangerous. 

The 26th Annual CALI Conference for Law School Computing brings together leading academics, educators, institutional leaders, and technology professionals to discuss the transformation of legal education through technology and innovation. Our theme for 2016 is “The Year of Learning Dangerously”, echoing the tough balancing act to meet the growing demands within the legal education community.
