Trialing Clio

Once you click the link, you will be prompted to select your subscription type.

When you choose the Yearly Subscription, you will see the amount that you will be billed and can enter in your card details. Please note that the full amount for the year will be charged right away and in accordance with our Terms of Service there is no refund for any unused amounts if you cancel part way through the year.

Adding Users to Yearly Subscription

Once you have completed your trial, you have the ability to purchase additional Attorney and Non-Attorney licenses that can be used for other members of your firm. Simply select the desired number of licences and, once you click on "Purchase Licenses", your card will be debited right away.

Once the purchase is complete you will see a summary of your licenses and which ones are currently in use. As you add new users to your Clio account, they will use the licenses that you have purchased.


What if a user leaves my firm, what happens to their license? It will remain unused until you add a new user to the account. Per our Terms of Service there is no refund for unused licenses.

What if I want to switch to Monthly Subscription? At the end of your Yearly Subscription you can switch to Monthly. You will see this option under "Renewal Options". Click here for more information about updating your subscription and renewal options.

What if I want to remove some licenses at the end of my Yearly Subscription? Under "Renewal Options" you will find the box to "Remove unused licenses at renewal". This will remove all unused licenses and only charge you for the ones in use.

I signed up for a Yearly Subscription, why isn't it starting today? Your Trial and/or any Monthly Subscriptions must expire first before the Yearly Subscription starts.

What if I have a Bar Member Benefit discount? If the discount was not applied during sign up for Clio, please contact Clio Support prior to signing up for the Yearly Subscription so that we can apply it.
