CLIC OVERVIEW

The Council on Legal Education Opportunity, Inc.’s “CLEO Legally Inspired Cohort” (CLIC) is a highly-competitive, ground-breaking program to identify, recruit, and train law school applicants who possess both the academic aptitude and leadership skills to attend one of CLEO’s partner law schools in a supportive team of five. After successfully completing CLEO’s Pre-Law Summer Institute, each CLIC team will attend a designated partner law school together.

“To me the CLIC program means a door filled with opportunities, hope, guidance, and friendships. CLIC also showed me to never stop trying, believing, or give up.”
