Call For Presenters

CALICON2022 : CALI At 40 || JUNE 9 - 10, 2022

The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction turns 40 in 2022. CALI was founded as a 501(c)(3) consortium of law schools in 1982.

For over 30 years, CALIcon, The Conference for Law School Computing, 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 law school faculty, librarians, and technologists with strong opinions, great ideas, interesting projects, and useful advice. Come and share and be challenged. 

This year CALIcon is planned as a hybrid conference. We will have a live gathering at Chicago-Kent College of Law in Chicago IL as well as presenting the full conference in a virtual setting. We're following formula that we've used the past couple of years, so we want you to submit a 15 minute pre-recorded session on some topic related to the conference theme. This can be a screencast, interpretive dance, podcast, Zoom panel discussion – whatever you want, but you have to record it and upload it to us by Midnight (CT) on Friday, April 29, 2021.

We are looking for 21 presentations, each 15 minutes long, that will be grouped together in 1 hour slots. The format will be 3 presentations followed by 15 minutes of live+virtual Q&A and discussion in each 1 hour slot. Your video, along with a written session proposal, will help us select sessions. If your session is accepted you will have the option of presenting live in Chicago, live via Zoom, or playing the video during your scheduled time. You will need to be available for the live+virtual Q&A and discussion segment following your presentation. 

To submit a session proposal, create an account, log in, and click on the Propose a Session button on any page. You must submit your proposal by Friday, April 29, 2022. Presenters will be notified by Friday, May 6, 2022 if their presentation is accepted. All submissions will be archived on the conference website.
