Carlton D. Watson
CLEO fully prepared me to excel in law school and in the legal profession by providing me with invaluable tools, numerous employment opportunities, by way of interviews, and by expanding my professional network.
CLEO helped me solidify my commitment to a career in public service as an attorney and showed me I was able to become the attorney I wanted to be through hard work and perseverance.
CLEO helped me understand what to expect from law school, what resources were available at the law school, how law school exams were structured, and which publications were good supplementary study guides.
Judge Tanya Brinkley
CLEO prepared me for a successful law school career and gave me the confidence to excel as a lawyer.
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.
