*** Bar exam results
The most recent Colorado Bar exam results were posted online here today. The official swearing-in ceremony for new attorneys admitted to practice law in Colorado is at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 20, at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, 950 13th Street in Denver, inside the Quigg Newton Denver Municipal Auditorium.

*** Too stressed to read this?
Take heed if daily stress results in any of the following: changes in sleep habits, changes in eating habits, inability to shake off blue feelings, increased use of alcohol or other drugs, feeling “it’s not worth it” or hopelessness, difficulty concentrating, inability to control anger, irritability over little things, crying a lot or shutting down feelings or fighting with family, friends and co-workers. You might not be coping with the normal stresses of daily life and law practice as well as you think. Stress management tips are available online or here too. This message is from Colorado Lawyers Helping Lawyers, www.clhl.org.

*** New Litigation subsection added
A subsection titled Class Actions, Derivative Suits, and Mass Torts Subsection is being added under the Litigation Section. Social gatherings and related CLE programs are in the works in the next couple months. To join and receive info, e-mail your name and contact information to Melissa Nicoletti at melissan@cobar.org.
