Covid-19 Resources

We rely heavily on in-person CLEs for our educational seminars, but the COVID-19 virus has changed our method of delivery. Therefore, the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association will conduct webinars and promote them until further notice. The July 2020 Conference has been cancelled but we are excited that in July 2021 two Past Presidents, Jan Spies and Rob Jones will be co-hosting their conference in Tamaya, New Mexico, right outside Santa Fe.

CDLA's Diversity Statement

The Colorado Defense Lawyers Association has the goal of promoting diversity within the legal community and assisting charitable organizations with a relation to the civil defense community. Charity, outreach and diversity must be viewed as a perpetual practice rather than reaching certain numerical markers. Charity, outreach and diversity efforts require sustained commitment, leadership, innovation and financial support. Through the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association Foundation ("Foundation"), we are committed to leveraging our collective efforts through partnerships and alliances in order to foster leadership, awareness and communications enabling an environment of good will and inclusiveness within our Association membership. We also are committed to using the Foundation to advance charitable interests or organizations with a relation to the civil defense community, as determined by the Foundation.
