Volunteer Projects & Task Forces

Most of our work is accomplished through task forces, where attorneys from different firms, with different levels of experience and expertise, work together. If the project is politically sensitive, every effort is made to ensure a bipartisan approach. This model of collaboration allows lawyers to be active on cases when they are available. Additionally, newer lawyers gain hands-on experience working side-by-side with more experienced attorneys.  

The Colorado Lawyers Committee currently has more than 20 active task forces in the areas of Children’s Rights & Education, Civil Rights & Criminal Law, Poverty & Public Benefits, Community Development and Immigration. Many need additional volunteers, and substantive expertise is not required.
