CBA Ethics Committee Assistance Program for OARC Disciplinary Matters

The Colorado Bar Association Assistance Program for OARC Disciplinary Matters (CBA and Program, respectively) is a pilot program that makes referrals of need- based legal assistance to respondent lawyers in disciplinary matters before the Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel (OARC). 1 The Program makes referrals to volunteer members of the CBA Ethics Committee, facilitating potential independent attorney-client relationships. This Program is not affiliated in any respect with the OARC.2 The CBA’s Executive Council and Ethics Committee have approved the Program.

 

1 Because the Program’s financial standards may differ from those of other programs through which lawyers providing pro bono services may qualify for CLE credits, this Program may not meet the CLE requirements set forth in Co.R.C.P. 250.9.

2 The CBA Ethics Committee is a volunteer committee of the Colorado Bar Association. It is not a department or agency of the Colorado Supreme Court, the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel, the Office of Presiding Disciplinary Judge, the State of Colorado, or any governmental entity.

All attorney-client relationships, if formed, are between the individual client and the lawyer providing services.
