COLORADO LAWYERS AND LAW FIRMS
Established in 1953, the Colorado Bar Association "CBA" functions exclusively for educational and charitable purposes, helping educate the general public and provide assistance to the State's legal institutions.
Not all licensed attorneys in the state of Colorado are members of the Colorado Bar Association. In Colorado, bar association membership is voluntary, but attorneys practicing in Colorado must be licensed through the Colorado State Supreme Court.
The Colorado Judicial Branch joins the Legislative and Executive branches to form the government for the State of Colorado. The Judicial Branch is charged with two responsibilities: resolving disputes and supervising offenders on probation.
The Branch includes the Colorado Supreme Court, Colorado Court of Appeals, and district and county courts, served by 262 justices and judges in 22 judicial districts across the state (excluding 17 Denver county court judges). Municipal courts are not part of the state system. There are also seven water courts, one in each of the major river basins.
