CALI Lessons & E-books

CALI Lessons are interactive tutorials designed to help law students improve their knowledge of legal concepts through a process of presenting a concept and then immediately testing them on it. Studies have shown that this is one of the most effective way to learn and retain knowledge. All CALI lessons are written and peer reviewed by faculty at CALI member schools. They can be used for student self-study.

(CALI Lessons are absolutely free for students and faculty at CALI member schools to use. However, you must register on the CALI website. Please see your CALI representative to get the authorization code needed to register.)

CALI also has e-books on various topics.

Below are CALI lessons helpful as study aids:
