Provides an organization available for all lawyers whose practice brings them in contact with matters affecting young people. Though a major focus concerns practice under the Children's Code, the committee is also concerned with relevant aspects of education law, domestic relations, agency/administrative law, and disability law. The committee emphasizes programs to improve the professional knowledge and skill of lawyers working in the juvenile law field, including legal education seminars and informal topical round-table discussions. The committee also serves as a resource to the bench and bar for analysis and commentary relative to specific issues that are identified as having broad or systemic ramifications. The committee analyzes pending legislation in the Colorado legislature, and makes legislative recommendations to the CBA Board of Governors.
Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month 4:30PM (see list below) at the Colorado Bar Association Office, 1900 Grant Street, Denver, CO 80203 unless otherwise noted.
Meetings are available by audio conference for members unable to travel to Denver for the meetings. Please contact Rebecca Spence, JLS’s CBA Liaison, to arrange for audio conferencing at email@example.com.
Many conferences offer special discounts for CBA Juvenile Law Section members - Ask when registering for an event!

As part of our work to ensure the right to counsel for children and youth in juvenile delinquency court, CJDC is collecting stories of the impact of juvenile court involvement on a young person's life. We are particularly interested in stories where a youth was unrepresented in their first case and then faced consequences later he/she was not fully aware could occur (revocation, school suspension/expulsion, inability to play high school sports, difficulty getting a job, student loans, etc.).
You can find the form for story collection here.
