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!

Inbound marketing for law firms – For those about to flock

Chris Davidson Moore LT

Written in honour of Malcolm Young, recently deceased founding member of AC/DC, there are nine references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are. The forces that are driving change in the legal profession are wide and varied. The ability of law firms and individual solicitors to respond positively and innovatively to these challenges will determine who survives and prospers. Competition for new business is fierce, a dog eat dog world, one might say. Which brings us to AC/CD. Not my favourite rock band, but an acronym for Attract, Convert, Close and Delight – the four pillars of inbound marketing.
