his marks the first year of the Denver Lawyers’ Arts and Literature Contest, and on behalf of The Docket Committee I would like to start by thanking all of the entrants that made this inaugural contest a success beyond our expectations. 

All of our entrants have a license to practice law, but those who stood out also showed off their artistic license. You’ll see their works in the following pages.

Our contest winners come from different walks of life and different practices, but with each of them the love for art and literature was fostered at a young age and is something each has developed and refined in turn.

Based on the response we’ve seen, it’s clear that many Denver lawyers find their balance in work with a creative outlet that allows for a bit of escapism, but one they all pursue with the same kind of discipline that has guided them in their careers.
