The Council on Legal Opportunity, Inc. (CLEO) has opened its call for nominations for the CLEO EDGE Awards for its 50th Anniversary. The Awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 15, 2018, at the Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC.
CLEO is launching an online networking platform in conjunction with its historic 50th Anniversary celebrations to connect thousands of CLEO alumni, students, and friends to jobs, mentors, and networking opportunities.
The Council on Legal Education Opportunity, Inc. (CLEO) urges the American Bar Association (ABA) to retain the requirement of the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) for law school admissions. CLEO also calls on the ABA to clarify that no other test should serve as a substitute for the LSAT.
I was really motivated by [ASAP] on how to successfully apply for law school and tackle the LSAT. I loved the panel of current law students as well as the first-hand knowledge we received from members of the LSAC Board [and law school admission staff].

CLEO showed me that anyone can become an exceptional attorney with hard work, passion, and the right support group, regardless of whether you fit the traditional profile that many people see in an attorney.
Honorable Diane R. Navarrete
CLEO made it possible for me to succeed in law school. It provided knowledge of what to expect in law school. It also provided an extensive networking system.
CLEO surrounded me with other ambitious, like-minded individuals who were ready to hit the ground running in law school. It helped me get into the law school mindset and it motivated me to get ready to study more than ever.
The CLEO programs (through all 3 years of law school) mentally prepared me on the upcoming challenges in law school. I truly believe CLEO was the guiding light to my success in law school.
