Pro Bono and Volunteer Opportunities

The Colorado Bar Association encourages members to engage in volunteer opportunities that positively affect communities and the Association itself. The following programs are designed to provide legal services to the public, public legal education, and professional development and networking opportunities to its members.

With many options available to the busy attorney, the Bar works to fit members into the right volunteer opportunity. For more information about these law-related educational or legal services programs, please contact the CBA at 303-860-1115, ext. 1. 

Pro Bono Legal Clinics and Ethical Considerations
To encourage lawyers to participate in clinics, and allay some common fears about the application of the Rules of Professional Conduct in clinic settings, the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel partnered with the Colorado Access to Justice Commission and the Denver Bar Association-Access to Justice Committee to produce “Justice For All: Pro Bono Legal Clinics and Ethical Considerations.” The video is available here as well as answers to frequently asked questions regarding representation at clinics
