Seeking Proposals for 2012 TCL Special Issue, due July 15
Over the years, The Colorado Lawyer has published “special issues” in a variety of law-related topics, which are comprised of five to eight substantive law articles on broad-based topics. Emphasis is on the practical and procedural, rather than the theoretical or philosophical. Authors and readers alike may have the opportunity for CLE credit.

A Letter from Your ABA President
Compliance with Voluntary Lawyer Guidance to Combat Money Laundering
This letter from ABA President Stephen Zack requests your assistance in alerting your members to “Voluntary Good Practices Guidance for Lawyers to Detect and Combat Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing” that the ABA helped develop. These “good practices” provide the best means of combating money laundering and avoiding much stricter federal legislation or regulations on lawyers that could conflict with the confidential attorney-client relationship or force lawyers to violate state bar ethical rules.
If you have any questions, please contact Larson Frisby in the ABA Government Affairs Office at 202-662-1098 or larson.frisby@americanbar.org.
