CALIcon19 Call for Presenters

The CALIcon19 theme is...

Paradigm Shift

“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.

For over 25 years, The CALI Conference for Law School Computing® has organized its schedule to bring the most relevant and up-to-date presentations to attendees. This year is no different and we are looking for law school faculty, librarians, and technologists with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects, and useful advice. Come and share and be challenged. If you are willing and able to speak, your conference registration fee is just $95!

All sessions are 1 hour long with 30 minute breaks between sessions. Almost everything will be recorded and posted online.

To propose a session, just visit, log in (remember to create an account), and fill out the form. Sessions need to be submitted by Friday, February 15, 2019. All sessions must be submitted through the CALIcon19 website.

We are going to use community voting to help with selecting sessions again this year. Your votes let us know which sessions you would like to see on the conference agenda. Starting on Friday, February 15, 2019 voting will be opened and will remain open until Friday, March 1, 2019. The number of votes for a session will be taken into consideration as part of the session acceptance process and to help with scheduling. To vote you will just need to visit the conference website and vote for the sessions you would like to see on the agenda. You do not need to be registered for the conference to vote.

We will notify speakers via email by March 22, 2019 if their session is accepted. The listing of accepted sessions will be posted on the conference website on March 22, 2019.
