CALI announces the formation of the Law School and Bar Exam Study Skills Fellowship

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) announces the formation of the Law School and Bar Exam Study Skills Fellowship. The Fellowship is comprised of members of the academic success community from U.S. law schools. The goal of the Fellowship is to author CALI lessons to develop students’ critical-thinking skills. The materials will be peer-reviewed by the fellowship team and the CALI Editorial Board. Everyone at CALI member law schools will have access to these materials when they are published in late 2019.

The Fellowship was created with the support of a grant from AccessLex Institute.

“Our Directed Grant Program supports projects that are highly aligned with our research priorities and strategic goals, and the Law School and Bar Exam Study Skills Fellowship definitely fits that bill,” said Christopher P. Chapman, President and Chief Executive Officer at AccessLex Institute. “As we move ahead with our plan to create a market-altering bar prep program with input and feedback from law schools across the country, scholarship like this is invaluable.”

“This is a new area for CALI. CALI already publishes over 1000 tutorials covering doctrinal law classes.  The new interactive lessons will focus on meta-skills for succeeding in legal education and will explore the intersection of law school and bar exam curricula. We have assembled a stellar team of academic success superheroes and hope to engage the broader community in future materials development,” said John Mayer, Executive Director, CALI.

Previous Fellowships have resulted in the addition of over 400 new lessons.
