CLEO, Inc.



CLEO, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides pipeline access and services to underrepresented students who want to attend law school. We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to pursue a legal education, regardless of their background or financial resources. With the recent U.S. Supreme Court affirmative action decisions our work is just as important now as it was when we were founded back in 1968.

Every year, we help hundreds of underrepresented students get on the path to law school, support them through their undergraduate journey, and prepare them to be accepted to law school. We partner with law schools across the country and provide students with the opportunity to interact with law school Deans, Admissions Faculty, and current law school students, as well as, active attorneys and professionals in the legal field.

CLEO alumni students are prepared properly for their 1L year of school, and beyond, with programs like PLSI (Pre-Law Summer Institute), AIE (Attitude Is Essential), Bar Prep Mentors program, and the CLEO Connection Alumni Network.

CLEO does not receive any government funding, our operations and continued success is completely reliant on our donors and program sponsors, and without your help, we wouldn’t be able to continue our work.

Please donate today. Every donation makes a difference. Thank you for your support.
