by Sarah Prosory 11. December 2012 13:37

Hi Students!

While the law library does have many study aid options for you to use, we want to highlight one more, which you may have used for a class already... CALI!

Check out the lists of lessons they have. Take the lessons as many times as you need to!

And once you're done with finals, you can use CALI to get a head start on your upcoming classes for Spring!

If you need to register for CALI, please see our YouTube video for instructions.

Click here for access to the student CALI authorization code (you'll need to log-in to Juristec to view it).

 

Good luck with finals!

Using CALI From TWEN Courses

by Sarah Prosory 10. October 2011 12:07

Hello students!

Your professors may have recommended CALI lessons within your TWEN courses. Many students have noted some issues when using CALI from TWEN. The thing to remember is that you need to login to CALI once you arrive at the CALI website to access the lesson. TWEN does not have the same login as CALI. TWEN does not share who you are with CALI. So you need to follow 3 simple steps:

1. Within your TWEN course, choose the CALI lesson you'd like to take:

 

 

2. Login to CALI. (Don't have a CALI account? You'll need the student code found here. Please call or email the reference desk if you need help: 602-682-6898 or library@phoenixlaw.edu).

 

3. Once you login, you'll see the green play button. Choose the button to access the lesson.
