Message from the President

The Colorado Chapter of the Federal Bar Association covers the entire state of Colorado. Chartered in 1945, our members come from private practice, government agencies, local law schools and the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. The Chapter sponsors exciting and unique CLE opportunities throughout the year including "Meet the Magistrate Judges" held each year, which is targeted to new lawyers and offers attendees the opportunity to pose questions to the magistrate judges about practice in the federal district courts. 

This year, the Chapter has reinvigorated its Young Lawyers Division, and will be focusing on providing support to this large segment of the legal community. The Board and members of the Colorado Chapter provide opportunities to network with other members of the bench and bar and to work together on matters of mutual concern.

The Colorado Chapter works closely with federal judges, practitioners, and law students to advance the sound administration of justice. For the past year and a half, the Chapter has held a liaison position on the Colorado Chief Justice's Commission on the Legal Profession.  In that capacity, the Chapter supports the development of Pro Bono activities and assists in community education. 

Besides serving our members, we look for unique opportunities to help chart the FBA's course at a national level as well as to be an active, responsible citizen in the Colorado legal community. We welcome you to become involved in your Chapter of the Federal Bar Association--if you have questions regarding membership or upcoming events, please contact me at (720) 837-8737 or at
