Professor Sonia Bychkov Green has been named a CALI fellow in Civil Procedure. Green is the first John Marshall professor ever to be named a CALI fellow.
CALI, also known as The Center for Computer Assisted Legal Instruction, is a non-profit consortium of mostly US law schools that conducts applied research and development in the area of computer-mediated legal education. The organization is best known in law schools for CALI Lessons, online interactive tutorials in legal subjects and CALI Excellence for the Future Awards (CALI Awards), given to the highest scorer in a law school course. Nearly every US law school is a member of CALI.
As a fellow, Green will be working with a team of faculty members from around the country to create innovative lessons in Civil Procedure. The fellowship runs through January 2018.
