About Colorado Bar Association CLE

CLE in Colorado, Inc. (Colorado Bar Association CLE) is the nonprofit educational arm of the Colorado Bar Association and the Denver Bar Association. We produce high-quality continuing legal education programs and legal publications at competitive prices, with substantial member discounts. We are self-supporting and receive no membership dues from the CBA or DBA. Our income derives from program registration fees and from sales of books, home study courses, and course manuals. Every year, hundreds of Colorado lawyers and judges volunteer their time and expertise to help us produce these educational resources for our members. Without this generous contribution of talent, Colorado Bar Association CLE could not fulfill its mission.

Colorado Bar Association CLE publishes over 60 handbooks and practice manuals in various areas of the law. Our publications are authoritative because they are written by practicing attorneys and sitting judges, and they are edited and cite-checked by experienced legal editors. Most of our books also undergo a peer review by other authorities in the field. CLE books are practitioner-oriented as well, because they include essential forms, helpful checklists, organizational tabs, a subject index, tables of authorities, practice tips, and sample language to save you time and make your services more economical. Finally, our books are sturdy, handsome, and well-made. They’ll look great on your bookshelf and provide years of useful service.


CLE Books are supplemented annually, or as needed. If you own any of our books, you may sign up for Automatic Supplementation. Then, when we publish a new supplement to your book, we will send it to you at a discount as soon as the supplement is available. Moreover, if you purchase a book and we publish a supplement or new edition within 90 days, we will provide with you a copy of the supplement or new edition, free of charge.


We continue to add new titles to our list of publications. Any Colorado lawyer or other qualified person interested in volunteering as an author, editor, or reviewer who can produce a quality manuscript in a reasonable amount of time is encouraged to contact us. We are particularly interested in finding lawyers with experience in legal publishing, law review editing, or judicial clerkships, and 10 or more years of subject-matter experience to serve as managing editors of multiple-author books, or to author a single-topic book. If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Dan Sweetser, CLE Executive Director by e-mail at [email protected].




Designed to meet the needs of Colorado lawyers, Colorado CLE presents over 100 live programs each year on a wide variety of topic areas, in various locations throughout Colorado. Many of the programs are co-sponsored by the sections and standing committees of the Colorado Bar Association. Our programs vary in length from half-day to multi-day annual symposiums and institutes. Most programs are available via webinar. If you have program suggestions or would like to volunteer to present, please feel free to contact us at 303-860-0608.




Unlike in other states, Colorado lawyers are able to fulfill any and all of their CLE requirements via home study. Please note that CLE home study materials do not include an affidavit. CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SUBMITTING FOR CREDIT ONLINE
