  • Thomas Jefferson School of Law, San Diego, CA
  • Thursday – Saturday, June 21-23, 2012
  • Conference website:

The theme for this year’s conference is ….

Some Assembly Required

We are constructing our future, here in the present. We have many excellent technologies, but figuring out how to use them to serve the educational, scholarly, professional and public service missions of law school is an ongoing challenge. This year’s theme is a double entendre meant to explicitly evoke that our future is not pre-packaged or purchased from a vendor – some assembly is required to make the pieces fit into our institutional cultures. Secondly, face-to-face meetings are still necessary in education, community-building and friendships. We need to assemble with each other to make connections and share experiences, so come assemble with your colleagues and friends – new and old in San Diego.

For 22 years, the CALI Conference has organized its schedule at nearly the last minute in order to bring the most relevant and up-to-date presentations to attendees. This year is no different and we are looking for people 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 FREE!

All sessions are 1 hour long. Everything will be recorded and posted.

To propose a session, just visit, login with your CALI account, and click on the “Propose a session” link. Sessions need to be submitted by Friday April 6, 2012. All sessions need to be submitted through the CALI conference 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 Monday February 27, 2012, voting will be opened and will remain open until Friday April 27, 2012. To vote you will just need to login to 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 May 4, 2012 if their session is approved. The listing of approved sessions will be posted on the conference website on May 4, 2012.
