Clio API - How To

Clio is a legal practice management system suitable for small to mid-sized law firms. It offers a suite of tools to help users manage their practice including document management, time tracking, billing, scheduling and more. The Clio API allows users to access functionality of the system and data stored inside the firm's Clio instance. Functionality includes operations on activities, bills, contacts, matters, tasks and users. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in JSON. The Clio API gives you and your approved developers secure access to the data in your Clio account. Please note that only accounts on a Developer, Boutique or Elite pricing plan can create apps or access applications not listed in the Clio Marketplace using the documented Clio API.
