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.

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.
