Subclassing the Commons

John Mayer, Executive Director of Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI)

John Mayer, Executive Director of the Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI), a non-profit consortium of over 200 law schools joined the Berkman Center  to discuss CALI's use of both social networking tools, as well as innovative software in the quest to provide the most thorough and practical means of legal education.

Specifically, John walked us through the different types of software that CALI offers and why they have proven to be so useful to their large network of users.  He also presented the idea of common casebooks, which would not only offset the cost, but allow for constant and immediate updating capabilities.

David Weinberger live blogged the luncheon and the Q & A that followed.

The event was webcast live, but if you missed the live chat, catch the podcast audio & video at MediaBerkman.
