Vote for the sessions you’d like to see at CALIcon17

First, thanks to everyone from the legal education community who submitted sessions for CALIcon17, the 27th Annual CALI Conference for Law School Computing. After a flurry of submissions late last week we have 58 proposed sessions featuring 79 speakers. It’s going to be a great conference. We’re going to be reviewing the proposals over the next few weeks and speakers will be notified by May 3rd if their session(s) are accepted.

As part of the review process we’re asking the community to vote on the sessions they would like to see on the agenda at CALIcon17. Your votes let us know which sessions you would like to see on the conference agenda. Voting is live now and will remain open until
Friday April 21, 2017. 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 just need to visit the complete session list at, click on the session you want to vote for, and give it a thumbs up. You can vote for as many sessions as you’d like.  You do not need to be registered for the conference to vote. All sessions
will be recorded and available online after the conference, so feel free to vote even if you’re not planning on attending in person.

Speakers are free to campaign for votes including using social media to let folks know about the conference. We do ask that you use the hashtag #CALIcon17 in any posts about the conference.

CALIcon17 is Thursday and Friday, June 15 & 16, 2017 at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law Arizona State University, Phoenix AZ.
