Clio200Expanding on their success within the legal education field in the US and Canada, Clio is now available, gratis, to law schools, legal clinics, and paralegal programs in the UK and Ireland.

The Clio Academic Access Program was started in 2010 and now has a presence in over 120 law schools throughout North America.

Practical experience in practice management

As more and more firms in the UK are utilising software to manage all areas of their practice, having hands-on experience using these systems allows students to move from school to firm, seamlessly.

The Clio Academic Access Program provides future lawyers and paralegals with practical skills, priming them for joining the workforce. With unique on-boarding packages for classrooms and for legal clinics, Clio is able to customise your students’ experience with the cloud-based system.

Already using practice management software in your legal clinic? The CAAP Team offers free data migrations from legacy systems.

Unlimited use. No fees.

Clio has waived the usual per month/per user subscription fees, allowing schools and clinics entirely free use of the cloud-based system.

Additionally, Clio requires no installation, no contracts and can be accessed on any device with an internet connection, whether it be a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. Clio has even introduced apps for iOS and Android!

Course materials included

For both clinical and classroom use, the Clio Academic Access Program offers free handbooks, assignments and video tutorials to prepare students to use Clio in their educational environment and in actual law practice. The CAAP Team is also happy to provide onsite training and demonstrations to the students and faculty.

Interested in using Clio in your law program? Whether you’re a student, administrator, or educator, please feel free to contact us for more information!

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
