Now is the time to stay connected to the Denver Bar

Easy CLE lunches

Stop by for lunch at the DBA offices nearly every Tuesday for an engaging, inexpensive CLE credit, with Tuesdays at the Bar. Members get a discount.

DBA helps lawyers build their reputations.

Get active and get noticed. People know they can rely on those who go above the bar and who take the time to give back. Stay in-the-know.

Mentors and mentee partnerships

NEW! Because they can’t teach law students everything in law school. And because it’s rewarding for senior lawyers to pass along their helpful insights.


Stay in-the-know. Every Tuesday, receive e-news from the courts, members-only benefits, volunteer opportunities, alumni opportunities, upcoming CLEs, lawyer-interest articles and activities and great books in the weekly e-newsletter. Advertise your event.

Discount tickets to theater and professional sporting events

The past year, the DBA has partnered with professional arts organizations and sports teams to offer members significant discounts – up to 25-50 percent off normal ticket prices. Avalanche, Nuggets, Rockies, Rapids, theater, symphony, opera, ballet and much more. Enjoy some down time, take the family or take a client!

The Docket

Let The Docket committee writers take you to new lands and share their unique perspectives. Read about your friends in Legal Affairs. Find fun things to do. Read Barely Legal, insights from a young lawyer. Find worthwhile upcoming CLEs and reviews of law-related books and films. Get law practice and business tips.

DBA is a fast track for movers and shakers to find each other.

Naturally, leaders and volunteers at the Bar experience increased professional benefits when they get involved and interact with peers on a committee or project at the local bar.


Diversity is important here, not just a buzzword. DBA sponsors and hosts networking opportunities for minorities. We get into the schools to inspire the next generation of diverse lawyers.


More and more attorneys are signing up for these social networking sites. Connect, identify clients and get involved.


DBA members give recognition for outstanding efforts and promote lawyers doing good work with awards and volunteer appreciation benefits.

8,500 other lawyers in Denver can’t be wrong.

The DBA has been serving members since 1891. As a voluntary membership organization, the members and staff keep the bar association relevant with professional development, Webinars, health insurance, malpractice insurance, law practice management tips, useful benefits, reputable vendors and more.

Be part of a strong legal community.

DBA committees serve a wide range of interests. Expand access to justice for the indigent. Promote Bench–Bar relations. Work with the homeless. Teach civics for an hour in a local classroom. Connect with peers – young or senior lawyers. Network with other professions and professionals. Promote professionalism.
