Sections

The Colorado Bar Association sections cover diverse specialties of the law. Each section is designed to offer members a closer association with other professionals engaged in a similar legal specialty. Active participation in these sections allows members to gain the maximum benefit from their CBA membership. This involvement creates a special opportunity for the members to study issues, express ideas, apply talents and share experiences with others who have similar interests. Sections also offer valuable, informative and inexpensive seminars and institutes that generally offer CLE credits. The discount for a single program often exceeds a member's total annual cost of joining the section. We encourage you to become a member of all the sections that interest you.

If you are interested in joining a section e-mail membership@cobar.org, or if you have general questions about a section, feel free to contact the section's liaison.
