Do you need to brush up on torts or property? How about business associations or tax? CALI might be just the resource you need to get up to speed. The Law Library’s subscription to CALI, the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction, provides BYU law students with access to nearly 1,000 internet-based lessons on different legal topics. Lessons range from core 1L courses (102 lessons on contracts, for example) to many different 2L/3L courses. In addition to being web-based, CALI lessons are often interactive–asking you questions to test your knowledge as you go along. Not only does this help you retain things better, but it can help add some variety to your study techniques.
