YLD DAY AT THE ROCKIES GAME

  • Family and friends are welcome

Come join the CBA/YLD at the ballpark in June!  Family and friends are welcome!  Mark Sunday June 22nd on your calendars - we'll be watching the Colorado Rockies take on the New York Mets at 1 pm.  Each CBA/YLD member can purchase up to 4 tickets at the discounted rate of $10 per ticket, while supplies last.  Any additional tickets can be purchased for $16 each.  There's even a free Rockies cap promo for the first 15,000 fans to arrive at the game.  For more information or to purchase tickets, email Devin Laiho at cbayld@snowmojo.com.

SPRING MOUNTAIN BIKING TRIPS

The YLD will resume scheduling mountain biking day trips this Spring!  Bike rides will be suited for riders of all skill levels.  All those interested in meeting other young lawyers for casual bike rides may contact James Garts by email at James@weeksluchetta.com.

YLD BULLETIN BOARD COMING!

The CBA/YLD is currently working on a YLD Bulletin Board.  Once up and running, each CBA/YLD member will receive a weekly email containing bulletin board messages.  There will be an opportunity to opt out of the weekly emails if you do not find the information and contact with others helpful.  The YLD Bulletin Board is still under construction, but will be coming your way in the near future.  Watch for additional announcements.

ANNUAL CBA/YLD FUNDRAISER

  • SAVE THE DATE:  October 17, 2008

Every year the CBA/YLD chooses one non-profit organization to benefit during the annual fundraiser.  The CBA/YLD is happy to announce that this year’s fundraiser will be benefiting Family Tree, a local non-profit organization.  Traditionally, the annual CBA/YLD Fundraiser has included a sampling of beers from Colorado breweries and a silent auction featuring such items as ski trips, scuba diving lessons, and even round trip airfare.  Mark your calendars now and be sure you don’t miss this year’s annual CBA/YLD Fundraiser.

ANNUAL YLD CLE CONFERENCE

Every year the CBA/YLD puts on a CLE program geared to newer attorneys.  This year’s event will be held November 11, 2008 at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.  Stay tuned for more information regarding the CLE program.

NEED SOME PRO BONO HOURS?

  • Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center

The CBA/YLD will be assisting the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center by providing much-needed assistance in screening potential cases and providing basic information to participants.  Young lawyers will have an opportunity to earn pro bono hours while serving the community.  All volunteers receive training and are scheduled to work an approximate 3-hour shift.  If you are interested, please contact Tiffany Warner at twarneresq@gmail.com.
