Get Clio in your classroom

Clio’s Academic Access Program offers free Clio access to instructors, administrators, and students in both clinical and classroom settings. As the world’s leading cloud-based practice management software, Clio is the perfect tool to help set your students up for successful legal careers.

  • Practical learning for today’s legal careers

    Using Clio’s industry-leading legal technology in your classroom or clinic will help prepare your students for the future of legal. From client relationship management, tasks, time tracking, documents, and calendaring, students can learn it all and have the tools they need to succeed at the business of law, as well as the practice of it. Clio is accessible from any computer, phone, or tablet, with no downloads required—making it a breeze to set up and maintain in any classroom or clinic.

  • Getting veterans the benefits they deserve

    The Veterans Advocacy Project at the University of Denver is committed to helping veterans receive the benefits they deserve. With the help of Clio, clinics like this are able to take on more cases of those in need and keep track of the growing caseload across multiple semesters and students.

Find out if you are eligible for Clio’s Academic Access Program

The Academic Access Program is designed to support faculty and administrators in teaching students valuable business and management skills to support their future legal careers. To be eligible for the Clio Academic Access Program, you must be a student or a faculty member active in one of the following environments:

  • Legal Clinics

    Give students hands-on experience managing the daily tasks of running a law firm by having them do so with Clio at a clinic. Students will gain technical experience in matter management, timekeeping, and cloud-based document storage before entering the competitive field of law.

  • Law School and Paralegal Studies

    Students using practice management software have a competitive advantage when applying to law firms upon graduation. Clio can support your students by providing a practical component to your classroom’s legal scenarios. You can customize your Clio account to simulate a specific practice area or use Clio’s product certification program to assist your curriculum.

  • Individual Students

    In addition to faculty members, 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. There’s a good chance that the law firm you end up applying to is currently using or evaluating Clio.
