Instructions on transitioning to the new membership tiers are here.

Membership Types and Costs

Free introductory individual memberships are available for individuals joining, for the first year only.

Thereafter, annual dues for Individual Members are $50.00 (U.S. funds). Individual members receive one hard copy of the Clinical Law Review.

School Membership grants membership to everyone engaged in clinical instruction at a member law school. Dues are set in tiers based on the number of full-time instructors, but everyone the school chooses to list as part of its membership will be a voting member, regardless of employment status. 

Tier 1 - up to 5 FT members: $150
Tier 2 - 6-10 FT members: $300
Tier 3 - 11-15 FT members: $550
Tier 4 - 16-20 FT members: $800
Tier 5 - 21-25 FT members: $1050
Tier 6 - 25-50 FT members: $1350
Tier 7 - Over 50 FT members: $3500

Schools receive one hard copy of the Clinical Law Review for every 5 members.

Starting in December 2023, we transitioned to this new membership system and moved the renewal date from July 1 to January 1. To facilitate this transition, we granted all existing members 6 months of free membership through January 1, 2024.

Please note: CLEA doesn't manage the lawclinic listserv. You can join that listserv here.

Join Online!

First, check this list to see if your school has a school membership, and who coordinates it. Then check your own membership status by searching for your name in the Clinician Locator. If you are a part of your school's bundle membership, your profile will display as “linked to” an administrator.

If your school has a school membership but you are not part of it, ask your coordinator to add you.

If your school does not have a school membership, you can join individually, online at this link. Your initial membership is free until January 1 of the following year.

Profile Updates

Please keep your profile updated! Members can update their own profiles at this link, even if they are part of a bundle.

However, if you are part of a bundle at one school and change schools, you cannot switch your bundle membership to the new school’s bundle. For assistance with this, please email us at
