Online event: Is fall 2020 just the beginning? Moving law schools online

Posted by david-hand | 01 July 2020

Legal educators and law librarians rose to the challenge as COVID-19 caused the dramatic shift mid-semester to remote teaching in spring 2020. As many law schools have already announced an intent to stay partially or fully remote, and still others may announce plans to do the same, it’s time to move beyond discussions of “remote teaching” to true “online learning”.

Join us for a webinar on the 13th of July which will provide insights to academic and library staff at universities around the world as they prepare for online teaching and resource access when the libraries and supporting professionals aren’t simply down a nearby stairwell.

Our speakers

John Mayer, Executive Director of The Center for Computer-Assisted Legal Instruction (CALI) will highlight the purpose, scope and experience of CALI’s highly subscribed instructional mini course (Preparing for the Future of Legal Education – Online Teaching Tips & Techniques) as well as the CALICON2020: LAW SCHOOL IN THE TIME OF PANDEMIC conference




Ron Wheeler, Director of Fineman & Pappas Law Libraries and Associate Professor of Law and Legal Research at Boston University, will draw on his leadership in law librarianship, library management, teaching and research, from his current role at Boston University and past roles including his presidency of the American Association of Law Libraries, to provide insight into the needs, stresses and actions Boston University and other law schools are experiencing, and speak to the foundational elements that law school libraries need to get right in order to perform and deliver at the highest standards while supporting remotely.



Colin Lachance, General Manager for North America at vLex Justis, will host the webinar, and moderate the discussion.
