Registration has just opened for the Conference for Law School Computing® (CALI), three days of legal education and technology fun.
This year the conference will take place at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts from June 19-21, 2014.
To register for the conference, you will need to create a new username/ password on the conference website even if you have an existing CALI.org username. There are three levels of conference registration:
- Faculty/Staff of CALI member organizations
- Faculty/Staff/Employees of non-member organizations
- Sponsors of CALIcon
The cost for attendees is $295 ($100 lower than last year). Speakers will now pay a $95 registration fee. As always, 3 breakfasts, 3 lunches and an evening reception are included with registration.
There will be approximately 50 sessions in 5 tracks covering a wide range of topics related to law school and technology.
In addition to the conference sessions, there will be two exciting and thought-provoking speakers for this year’s plenary sessions:
- Jason Scott, “rogue archivist”, documentary filmmaker and organizer of the Archive Team. Jason is currently working with the Internet Archive to preserve the history of early computing. You can read more about him on his website Texfiles.com.
- Dorothea Salo, an educator, author and frequent speaker on the topics of scholarly communication, data management and open technologies. You can read more about her on her personal website.
If you are not able to attend, most of the sessions will be streamed live and then available on YouTube after the conference.
I have attended several CALI conferences (2008, 2009, 2011) and have found them to be extremely worthwhile. I have always learned a lot from the presentations and from networking with fellow IT law folks.
Have you attended a CALI conference? Do you plan to go this year?
