Diversity, Pro Bono, and Public Service Opportunities
The Division has a special focus on public service, pro bono, and diversity efforts this year. Pulitzer Prize winning author of Enrique’s Journey, Sonia Nazario, is the keynote speaker at the Division’s prestigious Difference Makers Awards Luncheon celebrating extraordinary lawyers who make a difference by breaking down barriers for women, people of color, and people with disabilities, regardless of sexual orientation.
A special training session will be offered by the Kids In Need of Defense (KIND) organization to allow attorneys to assist unaccompanied children, some only three, four, or five years old, who currently represent themselves, in immigration court proceedings. If you are thinking about expanding your practice into the area of immigration or are willing to provide pro bono services for a vulnerable child, this session is for you.
We will also offer a program in collaboration with the Procurement Technical Assistance Center in the Denver area, which assists attorneys in becoming certified to obtain business from the government. Further, we will put on a CLE program to assist minority- and women-owned solo and small firm practices (as well as all solos and small firm lawyers) in using strategies to attract business from corporations, traditionally big firm clients.
For the Division’s Public Service Project, attendees will be able to donate needed items for the Literacy Coalition of Colorado. Click here for more information on items and the LCC.
Of course, this conference involves more than just programming. The two-day conference is chock-full of networking opportunities with a Welcome Reception, Women’s Roundtable, Diversity Roundtable, breakfasts, lunches, and hospitality suite.
