The University will be closed beginning Saturday, December 21 and will reopen on Thursday, January 2, 2014. This means that the Law Library will also be closed. If you plan on conducting research on Lexis during break, please do not send your print jobs to the Lexis printers in the Law Library. You may wish to print to your attached printer or download your work to your computer instead.

The Computer Assisted Legal Instructions (CALI) lessons are a valuable resource that you may wish to use to review or reinforce material covered in class.
“The CALI Library of Lessons is a collection of over 900 interactive, computer-based lessons covering most legal education subject areas. The lessons are designed to augment traditional law school instruction and can be assigned as supplemental study material or integrated with other course materials. ” (Source: CALI web site)
To use the lessons you will need to register on the CALI site and enter our law school’s authorization code. Here are the instructions for obtaining the School of Law CALI authorization code and accessing the CALI lessons:
1. Click on this link and enter your UAnet ID and university password.
2. A PDF document will open with Akron’s CALI authorization code and additional instructions on accessing the CALI website.
3. Go to CALI’s website ( http://www.cali.org ) and click on “Create New Account.” Follow the instructions on that web page and enter the CALI authorization code when prompted. Use your University email address.
You will need to use this authorization code the first time you register. During the registration process you create a custom password. In subsequent visits to use the lessons, you will just enter your email address and your custom password.
Please do not give The University of Akron School of Law CALI authorization code to anyone outside of this law school. The University of Akron is a member of the Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction and therefore has a license to the CALI exercises.
