Our CLEO Alumni

Since inception in 1968, more than 10,000 individuals have participated in one or more CLEO programs. With graduates from over 200 law schools, CLEO alumni are represented in virtually every area of professional society (corporations; law firms; local, state, and federal legislatures and judiciaries; academia; government; and non-profits/NGOs).

As the organization’s historic 50th Anniversary draws near, we are very proud of the many contributions our alumni have made to the legal profession and look forward to celebrating this organizational milestone.
