Business Law Section


About the Business Law Section:

Provides information and assistance to practitioners in corporate, partnership, commercial and banking law and offers them a means of influencing legislation and working for improvements in the law and the judicial system. Among other things, the section sponsors an ongoing program of monitoring and updating corporate, partnership, securities and other business-oriented laws. Section task forces have been instrumental in revisions to the Colorado Corporation Code, the Colorado Securities Act and the Uniform Commercial Code. The section works with the Colorado Secretary of State and other administrative agencies to secure appropriate services for the public and the bar. It arranges the publication of monthly articles in The Colorado Lawyer, the distribution of bankruptcy decisions, and the preparation of other material helpful to practicing lawyers. Coordinating with Continuing Legal Education of Colorado, Inc., the section designs and presents general and specialized topical luncheons for business lawyers.

Business Law Executive Council Meetings are generally held the third Wednesday of every month with the exception of July & August from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at the CBA Offices, 1900 Grant Street, Suite 900, Denver, CO 80203
