What to Expect at the Clio Cloud Conference
The Clio Cloud Conference is a two-day immersion in legal technology with big-name keynote speakers to sweeten the deal. Subject-matter tracks include:
- Business of Law
- Legal Technology
- Clio University
If you use Clio, it’s a no-brainer. The energy and excitement Clio brings to this conference is probably unlike any other legal conference you’ve been to, and the whole point is to take good care of Clio users (which is why your ticket is worth more than the price of admission). You’ll learn a ton, and the conference will probably pay for itself over again when you get back to your office and apply what you learned.
If you don’t use Clio but are considering it, the Clio Cloud Conference is also a great idea. If you decide to use Clio, you will get a big head start. If you decide not to, you won’t have any doubts because you will have seen it, tried it, and talked with other lawyers who use it every day. And you will still learn a lot and take home a bunch of ideas inspired by the keynotes.
If you don’t use Clio and don’t want to, the Clio Cloud Conference is less obviously compelling. But you’ll still get inspired by the keynotes, learn lots in the breakout sessions, and have a great time at the after-hours events. Even if you aren’t a Clio user, you won’t be disappointed if you go.
Tips for First-Time Attendees
Here are five tips for getting the most out of your first Clio Cloud Conference:
- If you don’t use Clio, don’t worry. Just stick to the legal technology and business of law tracks. The Clio-specific content is all in CEO Jack Newton’s opening remarks and the Clio University tracks.
- If you do use Clio, bring your problems. Clio developers will be on hand to do the hardest thing we can imagine doing: watching people use their product. They can help you solve problems on the spot, but they are also looking for opportunities to cure users’ pain points. By the end of the two-day conference, Jack will probably announce updates the team has made during the conference in response to user feedback.
- Go to the after-hours events. The optional Clio after-hours events are always great fun. Look for details when you register or check in so you don’t miss out. At least one is included with your ticket, and the optional events have been worth the extra cost.
- Grab a hangover kit in the morning. Clio throws excellent parties, so plan to go out and stay out. To help you freshen up in the morning, there will be hangover kits.
- Leave your family at home. Or if you do bring your family, make sure they know they won’t see you for two days. Day or night, there isn’t really anything you will want to skip.
