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 software to attend?

All legal professionals are welcome to attend this conference. While some sessions do focus on being successful with Clio’s software, many are focused on trends and topics that are relevant for all professionals in the industry.

I’ve never been to the Clio Cloud Conference or San Diego 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 San Diego—it’ll be warm.

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! More details about this event will be available in the spring. We will be releasing the conference app in early September. Attendees will be emailed closer to the event with details. The app will include agenda information, exhibitor information, speaker lineups, information for connecting with fellow attendees, and everything else you’ll need to help navigate your way through the conference. Even better, using the app can win you 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.

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.

Is there a conference hashtag I should use or follow?

Absolutely. #ClioCloud9 is the conference hashtag and you can follow Clio at @goclio on Twitter and Facebook. We’d love to see you engage with our team, the conference, and beyond.
