Individual Students

In addition to faculty members, law students may also request their own free, full-featured Clio demo account. Use Clio to manage your course schedule, track time during your externship program, or simply explore the endless opportunities of cloud-based management software.

Paralegal Studies

Provide invaluable exposure to the world’s most powerful cloud-based practice management solution. We’ve found that students who use Clio in their paralegal training have a competitive advantage when applying to law firms upon graduation.

The biggest impact of having Clio in our clinical programs has been that our students have grown comfortable managing cases from start to finish using one seamless platform. From document management to client engagement to time keeping, Clio has helped them understand that the practice of law today can be more efficient and effective when the right technology is in place.
