Instructions for Faculty Materials

Once you are confirmed as a faculty member for an upcoming program, your CBA-CLE Program Coordinator will reach out with a deadline for submitting:

  • Written Materials
  • PowerPoint® Presentation or Slides (optional)
  • Photo or headshot
  • Short biography

Please submit all items via our online faculty forms.

  • In-person presenters submit here
  • Virtual presenters submit here

Written Materials: As a condition of approving your presentation for CLE credit, the Colorado Supreme Court Board of CLE requires that you provide written materials to attendees. This rule  applies to panel discussions. If you are on a panel, please work to develop one set of comprehensive materials. The materials should be submitted by one of the presenters via our online form. Your written materials might contain an outline, articles, supporting documents and research, a PowerPoint® presentation, and other helpful resources.

  • A PowerPoint® presentation with slides containing statutes, case law, ethics rules, etc., or any content directly relating to and supporting the presentation topic, can qualify as materials. A PowerPoint® that is primarily photos, videos, etc., and used for entertainment value during the presentation, will not qualify as materials.
  • Please submit clean versions of articles/handouts with “Reprint Permission” if the articles have previously been published. You must contact the publisher to obtain permission to reprint. If you have not obtained permission, we cannot reprint the document.
  • Please DO NOT send copies of cases (ex. Westlaw and/or Lexis). Statutory, case law, and article citations are acceptable.

Photo: Please submit a hi-res headshot photo (sized at 150 x 150 pixels). Your photo will be placed in the Faculty Directory on our website and on the virtual conference platform (if applicable).
