Planning to go to Clio Cloud Conference 2022 in Nashville? I think I speak for everyone when I say good riddance to virtual conferences. I know companies tried their best to make them fun, but they weren’t. This year marks the first in-person Clio Con since San Diego 2019.
For those that don’t know, the Clio Cloud Conference is the largest lawyer conference in the world. This year it is being held on October 10 – 11, 2022 in Nashville, TN.

If you are looking for discount tickets, you can find them here for 30% off.
It’s important to note that you can earn CLE credits for attending the conference. I would also recommend attending if you are a paralegal, law student, or in the legal tech industry. As a legal tech CEO, I made amazing connections at Clio Con 2019 that led to massive growth in my company. I was even able to find investors.
There are a number of good reasons to attend this year’s conference in Nashville:
- To explore Nashville and southern culture
- There will be thousands of attorneys there that you can network with and set up referral arrangements with
- Go over the Legal Trend Report with experts (during their talks.) Use these statistics to improve your law firm.
- Get CLE credits
- There are workshops led by experts who can help you plan the growth of your law firm
- Go over any legal tech questions you have with tech experts
- There are daily yoga and fitness sessions
- It’s going to be a lot of fun
Below are some photos from the 2019 Clio Cloud Conference which I still think about at least a few times each month!
Photo: A whole bunch of lawyers getting ready for the next talk. There are normally around three talks going on in different rooms. You can pick if you want to learn more about legal tech, accounting, practice management … etc. I had to be selective with which talks I went to, which was hard.

Photo: Jack Newton (a founder of Clio along with Rian Gauvreau,) along with the previous COO of the company, George Psiharis, turned Clio into a wildly successful company. This is Jack Newton giving his opening statement/speech at the beginning of Clio Con 2019.
After Hours Events
I think that most people would agree that the “After Hours” events are the best part of Clio Con. Because it’s in Nashville TN this year, the lawyer conference seems to have a country theme going for it.
There are two main after-hours events, and some side events (normally steak dinners hosted by conference sponsors.)
The two main night events
Grand Ole Opry House (October 10, 2022)- Live musical entertainment
Nashville Underground (October 11, 2022)- Cocktails, mocktails
Photo: As you can see, the Clio team is good at picking locations to host the legal tech conference. The 32nd Street Naval Station (Naval Base San Diego) is across the bay.
Photo: Mark Britton, who built Avvo.com into a mildly successful company and sold it for nearly a billion dollars. He is now a venture capitalist based out of Seattle (Great-B Corp.) He inspired me.
Photo: Glenn Greenwald, who helped Edward Snowden illegally share secret information with the world endangering many. Zero points on the moral side of things, but was still interesting to hear his story. I read his book too, as I was interested in the secrets he put online.
Photo: You might need to Zoom in to see the email, but it’s the original email sent from investor Christoph Janz to Clio which ended up in the spam inbox and was almost missed.
Clio Cloud Conference 2022
Jack Newton, Rian Gauvreau, and George Psiharis turned Clio into a company worth around two billion. It’s inspiring to hear their stories and learn from them.
To end off with, check out this Clio ad below, it’s one of the best legal industry ads I’ve ever seen. Clio provides practice software to law firms, which should give the advertisement some context.
