Earlier today I caught a tweet from Law Librarian and Professor Shaun Jamison about his Future of Law course. Specifically, it was about a CALI resource he’s been using – one I tend to forget about but is so valuable and useful today. Yes, CALI has a set of resources – powerpoints, recorded lectures and exercises – created by some of the leaders in the legal practice world and absolutely free for you to use and adapt in your classes. We call them the Topics in Digital Law Practice.
This set of resources orginially started out life as a MOOC held in the Spring of 2012. The topics ranged from document automation to virtual law practice to the technology that’s used in the courts. The speakers graciously donated their time and work materials to CALI and we have published them on the web with a Create Commons CC BY-SA license. That means that you can reuse, remix and republish them and all you have to do in return is credit CALI’s Topics in Digital Law Practice as your source and link back to the site if you are publishing it on the web.
The topics and speakers were as follows:
