AIE was instrumental in helping me prepare to succeed in law school. As a first-generation professional student, I felt unprepared to attend law school but after attending AIE, I felt I had the tools I needed. I don’t know where else I would have received the guidance and direction AIE gave me!

I am extremely grateful for what CLEO has done for me throughout my time in law school. I have not missed a conference since becoming a member of the CLEO family, and each conference has offered something valuable which augmented my legal education.
