The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) is seeking nominations of qualified and enthusiastic individuals to fill vacant positions on its Board of Directors. If you know of someone who would like to contribute to the research and development, strategic planning and governance of CALI, then consider nominating them for the CALI Board of Directors.
Please clear it with the person first to make sure they WANT to be nominated. Self-nominations are acceptable. It helps our process if the nominee provides some background on their interest in CALI’s mission and activities.
- Name of the nominee
- Phone number of the nominee
- Email address of the nominee
- Institutional affiliation of the nominee
- CV and/or link to home page/bio for the nominee.
Directors are required to attend TWO meetings a year (June during the CALI Conference and January during AALS). Directors serve on committees at the behest of the President of the Board and work on other projects and issues relating to the governance, strategy-setting and promotion of CALI’s mission and activities.
Directors terms are for three years at which time their service is evaluated by the Nominating Committee along with other nominees. Service on the CALI Board is voluntary and gratis. Travel expenses for the Board meetings can be covered by CALI if institutional support is unavailable.
The list of all nominees will be submitted to the Nomination Committee who will determine a slate of candidates to be presented to the CALI Membership at the Annual Breakfast to be held on Saturday, January 9, 2016, 7:15-8:30 am in New York, NY during AALS.
All nominees will be contacted soon after nominations are closed. Nominees who are chosen by the nominating committee and elected by the membership are required to attend the CALI Board meeting tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 9, 2016 in New York.
CALI is a dynamic and forward-thinking 501(c)(3) non-profit with big plans and big ideas. CALI is supported primarily by membership dues from over 200 US law schools. Qualified Directors should have knowledge and experience that they can contribute to the ongoing dissemination, development and strategic planning towards CALI’s mission.
Some of our projects include:
* CALI LESSONS: CALI publishes over 900 web-based tutorials that are used by law students and law faculty at over 200 US law schools. We are constantly adding new lessons and updating the existing collection. More information is at www.cali.org/lessons.
* ELECTRONIC CASEBOOKS/EBOOKS: CALI publishes e-casebooks and other legal texts in multiple ebook formats under a the eLangdell imprint. These are distributed under Creative Commons licenses to allow for maximum flexibility for faculty and students to use in their educational endeavors. More information is at elangdell.cali.org.
* ACCESS TO JUSTICE/EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING: CALI created the A2J Author software platform that is used by legal aid attorneys and law schools to teach their students law process automation. More information about using A2J Author in law schools is at a2jclinic.classcaster.net.
