*** Bring civics into a school near you
Volunteers are still needed to judge middle and high school student presentations on the Constitution and civics. Little preparation is required. This is a great opportunity to inspire future citizens. Please tell coordinator Meghan Seck (mseck@cobar.org) which slot fits your schedule: morning slots available on Nov. 5, 6, 11, 12, 14, 20, 21 or Dec. 3. Afternoon slots are available Nov. 11 and 12.

*** Check out this money-saving member benefit
The Legal Community Credit Union of Colorado offers lower rates on home, auto and personal loans, as well as credit cards. Members can access 300,000 surcharge-free ATMs nationwide. The National Credit Union Association recently increased insurance on deposit accounts to $250,000. Not one penny has ever been lost by a member of a federally insured credit union. For more information, e-mail Sherry at ceo@coloradolegal.org. View LCCUCO’s monthly newsletter here.

*** Trial Practice for Litigators — What You Forgot about Trial Practice While Writing Briefs
While advocating with the pen, litigators often forget about the joys of advocating with their heart and soul. Join us for Tuesdays at the Bar lunch hour geared toward litigators and mock trial coaches and teachers at noon, Tuesday, Nov. 11, at the DBA offices, 1900 Grant St., Suite 900. Then from 1-5 p.m., the presentation continues as a comprehensive trial practice skills refresher course. Free for coaches and open to all members, with a $15 charge for non-coaches. RSVP to lunches@cobar.org or (303) 860-1115 ext. 727 (specify which program).

*** Legal Night - Answers to consumer questions during tough times
During the current economic crisis, questions about consumer rights are on-the-rise. Members, as well as volunteers for legal services such as LawLine 9 and our legal clinics, are invited to earn two CLE credits at Legal Night, Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 3-5 p.m., at El Centro de San Juan Diego, 2830 Lawrence St. Speaker Jose Vasquez from Colorado Legal Services will address bankruptcy, foreclosure, credit, collections and housing issues, as well as how to educate low income individuals. Free and open to all members. RSVP to lunches@cobar.org or call (303) 860-1115, ext. 727.

*** Join the Our Courts movement
Our Courts is looking for new speakers! Spread the word about the workings of the courts and the vital public roles of the judiciary. Both upcoming Our Courts training sessions will cover the new federal courts presentation, as well as the program on how judges in Colorado are selected, evaluated and disciplined.
