About the YLD

The Young Lawyers Division exists to serve law students and new lawyers. We put on CLEs, host networking events, help facilitate volunteer opportunities, and create pathways to leadership positions within the Bar and our communities. Any member of the CBA who is under 37 or has been in practice for less than five years is automatically a “young lawyer.” If you’d like to know more about us, including how to become more involved, contact the staff liaison Jess Ham.

Mission Statement

The Colorado Bar Association Young Lawyers Division serves young lawyers and law students of Colorado; promotes professional values and involvement in the Bar Association; and provides opportunities for its members to form connections with fellow attorneys, to engage in professional development, and to serve the legal community and the community at large.

Get Involved

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jess Ham at jham@cobar.org.
