Annual dues for Full Members paying individually are $40.00 (U.S. funds). Full Members have full voting rights in CLEA and receive the Clinical Law Review via regular mail twice a year.
Annual dues for Associate Members paying individually are $15.00 (U.S. funds). Associate Members have full voting rights but do not receive the Clinical Law Review. Associate Membership is designed for persons engaged in legal education on a basis that is less than full-time (such as an adjunct or field placement supervisor in an externship program), law faculty (full-time or part-time) in countries outside of the U.S., and others interested in the furtherance of clinical legal education who are not full-time legal educators.
CLEA offers a Group Membership payment option for law schools. Group Membership provides savings for law schools paying CLEA membership dues for all law faculty teaching clinical courses at one time. Each school is entitled to one free Associate membership for every full membership paid at the discounted price of $37.50.
To determine if you have a current membership go to the Clinician Locator at http://cleaweb.org/ClinicianLocator. If you do not find your name on the list than you do not have a current membership and you will need to create a membership profile using the on-line membership application found at http://cleaweb.org/member-application.
To renew please log on to http://www.cleaweb.org/ and view your profile. To sign-in to the website use your e-mail as your username. If you do not know which e-mail you have used e-mail email@example.com and ask for this information. Your temporary password is CLEA2014 (unless you changed it after AALS clinical conference in 2014). While you are logged in to the website verify that your contact information is correct and add a photo for the membership directory. If you are a part of a group membership the name of your membership administrator at your school will show up. The membership (bundle) administrator is the person at your school who pays for the group membership.
If you are renewing a group membership and you need to add or remove members send your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your request please send the members name, e-mail, and membership level (full or associate). We will then send you an invoice when the changes are made so that you can renew your membership.
There has been some confusion about bundle administrators. If an administrative member of your clinic is responsible for paying for and maintaining your school’s membership they need to be “members” of CLEA but their inclusion in your group membership bundle does not count against your group membership numbers unless they are also named as a full or associate member of your group.
CLEA offers two payment options: on-line or by check. If you pay by check please mail this form or an invoice from the website with your check payable to CLEA to: Laura McNally-Levine at Case Western Reserve University School of Law; Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center; 11075 East Blvd. Cleveland, Ohio 44106.
For any questions, please contact the CLEA Membership Co-Chairs, Laura McNally-Levine, and Maritza Karmely, at email@example.com.
