What is Launch//Code?

Launch//Code is Clio's developer contest in which they invite innovators in the legal tech space to develop an app integration for Clio Manage that addresses a difficulty in business management for legal professionals. All different apps are welcome, including previously tested apps or brand new ones. Winners for Clio's Launch//Code Contest will be announced and brought onto stage to collect their prize of $100,000.


The Contest

Any person or team looking to enter the contest has to develop an app that simplifies and streamlines client data processes in order to eliminate cumbersome workflows and achieve overall efficiency. To enter the contest, inventors have to build their potential Clio-integrated app and launch within Clio's app directory, submitting an application to go along with it.

Once finalists are chosen, they will be invited to attend Clio's Cloud Conference, where they'll pitch their app integrations to a panel of highly-esteemed legal professionals. One winner is chosen and takes home the $100,000 prize, while all other approved apps are welcomed within Clio's app directory.
