Most of the good stuff on www.cali.org requires you to have a CALI account. Accounts are available for everyone at CALI member schools, all you need to do is register. Registration is very easy and should take about 2 minutes. Before you get started you need two things: (1) Your school’s authorization code and (2) a valid email address. Yep, that’s it!
Okay, to start you will go to www.cali.org. In the top right hand side of the page, there is a link to register. (Shown below.) Click that or alternatively you can just go right to www.cali.org/register.
A few things to remember:
- You need an authorization code to register. The code lets us know what school you’re attending. At most member schools the authorization codes are available from your law library. Check the CALI contacts list to see who to ask at your school.
- Make sure your authorization code is accepted by the site. You’ll know it is when you are asked to pick a graduating class date or a staff/faculty group. You may have to click outside of the box to get the process started. It usually takes just a few seconds, but during the back to school rush, sometimes it may take up to a minute.
- Use a valid email address. If you forget your password the only way to reset it is to have the reset link mailed to you. If the email you used when you registered doesn’t work you won’t be able to reset your password.
That’s pretty much it. Register once and then for the rest of your law school career you can use CALI Lessons and other resources as often as you like. If you have any questions or issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us! We are here to help you get through law school.
