CALI Lessons

During the course of the semester, you may want to take advantage of CALI lessons to help you prepare for exams. CALI (Computer Assisted Legal Instruction)tnt_legalpapers_6_logo includes tutorials that are created by law school faculty for students. There are over 50 web-based lessons covering more than 35 law school subjects. Texas Tech University School of Law is a member of CALI, so the lessons are available to you.

If you haven’t already done so, here’s how you can set up a CALI account:

1. Get the authorization code for Tech Law.

  • You can do this by stopping by the Law Library’s reference & information desk and asking for a CALI card.
  • Or, you can also retrieve it online via the Law Library’s Electronic Resources page, alphabetically listed under CALI.

2. Once you have the code, go to and, on the right side of the screen, click the link for “Register.”

3. Complete the registration process, which will require you to create your own username and password, in addition to entering your CALI authorization code.

Once you have registered with CALI, you will have full access to all of their resources. You can search for lessons in a variety of ways, including by topic and by casebook.
