The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction's (CALI) Library of Lessons contains over 900 interactive, computer-based legal tutorials covering more than three dozen legal education subject areas. The lessons are designed to augment traditional law school instruction. Many of your classmates have found them helpful in preparing for their exams.
Free copies of the DVD are available at the library's Circulation Desk. You may also view the lessons online. The student authorization code and instructions are available at the library's website. You must register with your "@louisville.edu" email address.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Dean DiSanza or Barbara Thompson.
Since 2003, Dean DiSanza has been teaching at the University of Maryland School of Law (where she worked as Director of Student Affairs for six years and received her J.D.) in their “Women, Leadership, and Equality Program.” Based on concepts and theories she learned in her Master program at Johns Hopkins University, Dean DiSanza developed a three session program (later condensed to one session, once she had left UMLaw) that focused on the unique qualities women should consider when entering the workplace. She empowers the students with information about leadership theory, group theory and organizational behavior. She then weaves the issues of gender and equality into the mix. The purpose of this session is so students can assess current and future workplaces for cultures and norms. They are also given several self-evaluations to gauge their understanding of their own leadership and conflict resolution styles.
