Great Resource for Pre-Law Students

Most law professors who work with first-year law students have probably wished for a resource that would give incoming law students a head-start on their first semester of law school. But we never seem to find the time to do much about it.

CALI (the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction) is working on just such a resource, Parts of the new site are still under construction, but you can find information about CALI and CALI lessons, links to other online resources, and book recommendations. A pre-law-school set of CALI lessons will be offered for $50.

There is also a Pre-Law Blog on which CALI podcasts and other material relevant to incoming first-year students will be posted. The first set of podcasts gives incoming students insight on how law school exams work, how to prepare for and take a law school exam, and what professors expect from students on law school exams.
