Public Legal Education Committee

The Denver Bar Association Public Legal Education Committee is recruiting volunteers to help in the Denver Public Schools.

Attorneys who may have been teachers are needed, but any volunteer interested in assisting high school teachers and eventually all grade levels are welcome. You would help teach law-related education curricula like constitutional studies, practical law, in-room mock trials and more. Volunteers also would encourage and support forming teams to compete in the "We the People" (Constitutional Scholars) competition and in the CBA state mock trial competition. Please contact Dave Ells at (303) 824-5323 or at

Donate Unused Tickets for a Good Cause!

Do you ever have tickets for sporting or cultural events that go unused? The Colorado Bar Association’s Family Violence Program can put those tickets to a great use. Working with several non-profit organizations, the CBA will donate these tickets to survivors of domestic violence, people with mental or physical disabilities, families with low income and individuals suffering from AIDS. For many of these individuals and families, attending a baseball game or a musical event is something they would never have the opportunity to do without donated tickets. For more information, contact Melissa Trollinger at (303) 824-5333 or

Batters Up!


On June 14, a familiar face graced the big screen at Coors Field. Former DBA President Susan Smith Fisher threw out the first pitch in the Colorado Rockies vs. Seattle Mariners game. Fisher, a lefty, has since signed a multi-year contract for an undisclosed amount. She’ll begin in Colorado Springs, but hopes to move on to the "show" for the pennant run in September.
