• Colorado Federal Pro Se Clinic
    Improving access to justice in our Federal Courts

Colorado Federal Pro Se Assistance Project

The Colorado Bar Association Federal Pro Se Clinic assists unrepresented litigants in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.  The clinic helps to prepare complaints and responsive pleadings, provides assistance with other common pleadings, answers procedural questions, and explains legal concepts such as jurisdiction, venue, and service of process. Our focus is on civil procedure – navigating the court system, rather than substantive law.
