The conference attracts leaders from across the legal and technology industries who want to learn, be inspired, and innovate. Our goal is to pair exceptional content with a learning environment that will nurture your body, mind, and soul. Come join us and find out what all the hype is about!

How many years has the Clio Cloud Conference been running?

This is our sixth conference! ClioCon continues to grow and after four years in Chicago, we moved the event to New Orleans in 2017. Every year we set the bar higher and strive to deliver an even better event.

Who attends the Clio Cloud Conference?

ClioCon attracts legal professionals from across the industry in all practice areas. Attorneys, paralegals, office administrators, bar leaders, law librarians, law students, legal technology enthusiasts, and more will find engaging and relevant content for their firms, businesses, or agencies.

Do I have to use Clio’s legal practice management software to attend?

All legal professionals are welcome to attend this conference. While some sessions do focus on being successful with Clio’s legal practice management software, many are focused on trends and topics that are relevant for all professionals in the industry. Our Business of Law and Legal Technology tracks strive to bring thought leadership to the fore and will feature key individuals at the leading edge of the industry.

I’ve never been to the Clio Cloud Conference or New Orleans before. What should I pack?

The Clio Cloud Conference is where the technology and legal worlds collide. Dress up or dress down! Feel free to bring business-appropriate attire, or kick back and wear something more comfortable like shorts and a t-shirt. This is New Orleans—it’ll be hot.

That said, it’s important to remember that all indoor spaces are air conditioned at the conference, so while it’s hot outside, it can be chilly inside during conference hours. Bring breathable clothing, a light jacket, and comfortable shoes.

We encourage attendees to also bring their tech devices of choice to the conference. Definitely bring your smartphone so you can use the conference app for everything you need to know (including how to win amazing prizes).

Does the conference have an app?

Yes! We will be releasing the conference app in early September. Attendees will be emailed closer to the event with details. You can also head into the app store on your iPhone or Android and search “Clio Cloud Conference.” We will be updating the app closer to the conference date with agenda information, exhibitor information, speaker lineups, and everything else you’ll need to help navigate your way through the conference. Even better, using the app is tied to winning amazing prizes!

Are there prizes and if so, how can I win?

Yes! There are amazing prizes to be won at the Clio Cloud Conference. The Grand Prize Winner will win a trip for two to visit the Clio team in Vancouver, Canada. In addition to the grand prize, excellent tech prizes will be offered. In the past these have included Apple Watches, Kindle Readers, Sonos Wireless Speakers, and Bose Headphones.

Details on how to earn entries will be confirmed closer to the event, but will involve social media and conference app engagement. Prizes are handed out during the conference closing remarks, and you must be present to win.
