(Chicago, IL) – October 27, 2021 – The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) has received a grant from AccessLex Institute® to extend the CALI Law School Success Fellowship. The goal of the Fellowship is to further the reach of Academic Success Professionals and help law students become better learners in the unique law school environment. The grant will produce 12 CALI Lessons, 12 video walkthroughs of CALI Lessons that expand on the material, and 20 podcasts, in a collaborative process by the Fellows. These materials will be cross-reviewed by the Fellows, internally reviewed by experienced CALI staff, and anonymously reviewed by the CALI Editorial Board. When complete, these materials will be published on the CALI website and made available to over 100,000 law students to help them succeed in law school and to thousands of pre-law students contemplating a career in law.
“AccessLex is a real force of good change in legal education. We are delighted to be working with them again on these innovative learning materials that could help all law students in their studies,” says John Mayer, Executive Director, CALI.
The CALI Law School Success Fellowship produced 35 law school success lessons representing 5% of all CALI Lesson runs since August 2020.
