Welcome Clio Cloud Conference!
What if you could do that every single day?
A Thriving Discussion Forum
There are also channels dedicated to non-legal topics such as fashion, gaming, pop culture, and more. Members exchange over 15,000 messages weekly.
Where attorneys you actually want to hang out with hang out.
Even though I seem to be asking for help a lot as a newer attorney, I look forward to the point I can give back to the community and share what I know to help others. Also, now I know a Canadian attorney who will send ketchup chips if you ask nicely!
For a solo lawyer, it still provides a great watercooler to fend off the occasional loneliness of solo practice. There are channels devoted to pretty much every interest you can think of. If you’re a new solo, the membership is worth it for the camaraderie alone.
Since joining, I’ve made good friends in LawyerSmack and learned a lot from many others about how to be a good lawyer. I was skeptical at first but took a leap of faith and I’m glad I did.
Some people are looking for business, and I see it happening. I’m not looking for that either. Although, I’m sure I’d get a call if someone needed me. Others like to have a place to work on their theories, or talk to people about their experts. It’s good to have that at your fingertips.
But for me, I like talking to other lawyers. I like listening to other lawyers. I like watching other lawyers “think.” You can only practice law, you never stop learning it.
Both online and at amazing live events…like the LawyerSmack party during the Clio Cloud Conference.

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s involved with the application process?
To apply, you’ll need to fill out a short questionnaire about you and your practice area. You also have to submit verification of your law degree (JD, LLM, etc) – a link to your Bar Directory Profile or a picture of your degree.
How to know if you’re the right fit?
You take your work very seriously, but not yourself. Someone jokingly described the community as “Cheers, set at the Mos Eisley Cantina, as written by John Grisham.” If you get all that, you’re in the right place. It’s a community of lawyers with their ties loosened, cutting up and mentoring each other.
New to Forums? What should you expect?
A thriving and vibrant place to check out on a daily basis. Each day you’ll find new and relevant discussions, industry news, and questions posed from other lawyers. The community uses our private Slack group.
This is not a group of lurkers. Every member is expected to give as much as he or she receives from the community. Our members will be the first to tell you that this community is guaranteed to help you move your practice in a better direction.
Why is there a fee?
It’s a small fee to make sure we only have committed members. Our community is for people who want to better themselves and their practice – while having some fun. Membership is only $139 annually. If you’re a lawyer and balk at paying $139 annually for a service, you don’t need to be in here. At less than $.40 per day, we assure you that our community will be worth its weight in gold.
We want each and every one of our member’s to be a member for life.
What Does Slack Look Like?
- Fed R Civ P Nerds
Plus state-specific channels for lawyers to meet and confer locally.
