Bar News Photo Highlights

The "Highlight" page of Bar News spotlights recent activities and special events around the Bar, and presents brief stories that deal with lawyer activities outside the practice of law. If you have print or digital photos of a recent event to share with fellow CBA members, if you would like to recommend a colleague to be "highlighted," or if your local or specialty bar or legal organization has marked a notable milestone and there’s a short story to tell about it, the "Bar News Highlight" page might be the appropriate venue.

CBA "Make It Your Business Reception

In October 2004, the CBA Family Violence Program ("FVP") held a reception for the "Make It Your Business" Program. The program, which began in March 2001, was funded by a grant from the Colorado Attorney General’s Office. The CBA program officially wraps up in December 2004. Under the direction of CBA FVP Director Kathleen Schoen, the program’s participants worked tirelessly to expand individual, community, and business awareness about domestic violence in the workplace. Initiatives were established and prevention training to staff and business managers was conducted to address the issue. (See related article in this issue, "Domestic Violence: ‘Make It Your Business’ A Huge Success," on page 49.) Here are a few photos from the reception.
