The circulation period and overdue fines for OASP and Sum and Substance materials will change for Reading Period and Finals. Starting on Saturday, Nov. 29, these materials will circulate for only 1 day (instead of 72 hours) and no renewals will be allowed. Overdue fines for these materials will increase from $1.00 per day to $5.00 per day.
These changes provide access to the materials for a greater number of students. If you have questions regarding these changes please stop by the Circulation Desk and ask to speak with Ms. Nevins or a librarian.
It is the time of the semester when students are writing papers and preparing for exams. Please be courteous of your fellow students and help control the noise level throughout the Law Library. Please put your cell phones and pagers on vibrate and conduct quiet phone conversations either outside of the Law Library or near the Law Library restrooms. If you listen to any form of audio, use headphones and keep the volume low. Please limit conversations in open study areas and if you want to work in a group, please use a study room. When using group study rooms please be respectful of your neighbors and keep discussions under control, the walls are not soundproof. Thank you.
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.
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.
