Academic Law Librarians: Be a CALI Legal Research Author!
There are LOTS of benefits of being a CALI Legal Researcher Author ....
1. Help your students: A majority of students would rather do a CALI lesson than read a legal research textbook. See Elizabeth G. Adelman, CALI Lessons in Legal Research Courses: Alternatives to Reading About Research, 15 Perspectives: Teaching Legal Research and Writing 25 (No. 1, 2006). Students and teachers feel that the lessons enhance student understanding. Id.
2. Help the academic legal community: Students and faculty at other schools can make use of your lesson.
3. Help your career:
- Deepen your own understanding of the material.
- Add to your authorship credentials by completing a peer-reviewed product.
- Raise your profile among legal research professionals.
4. Earn Money and Perks upon lesson completion:
- $1,250 per lesson, split between the lesson's authors
- Waiver of the fee for the next CALI Conference on Law School Computing
