CALI's New "Legal Education Commons" - A Boon For Law Faculty

CALI announces it's new Legal Education Commons, a place
for teachers of the law to find, utilize, and share legal education
materials. The Center is an open pool of legal education materials
available under a creative commons license, so teachers of the
law can utilize what they find in the LEC to help them teach.

So far, the LEC includes 700,000+ federal court cases from as well as 300+ original illustrations from
CALI lessons. Users are encouraged to upload files for sharing
by contributing syllabi, presentations, podcasts, or any file
they believe may be helpful to others who wish to teach or learn
the law.
