Colorado Bar Association CLE

CBA-CLE is the nonprofit educational arm of the

Colorado Bar Association and the Denver Bar Association.


Planning or Presenting a Program

Colorado Bar Association CLE offers over 125 Colorado-focused continuing legal education programs each year. We focus on comprehensive half, full, and multi-day programs, and occasionally offer shorter courses as well. Many courses are available in person (Downtown Denver) and virtually (via Zoom), and most courses can also be viewed later as a recorded home study. We aim to provide helpful educational content to all Colorado attorneys and across all practice areas.

Volunteer faculty members and program chairs serve the educational needs of our legal community and boost their own careers along the way!

Planning a Program (Program Chair)

Dedicated program chairs devote their time and expertise to creating a CLE program. Program chairs work closely with CBA-CLE staff to brainstorm a program idea, organize the agenda, invite speakers, review written materials, and deliver the program. Our program chairs are leaders and experts in their field, and we could not serve the legal community without them.
