Law Week Lookahead: April 2022

Stay connected with the Colorado legal community this month with events to learn, socialize or hone your skills. Join the Colorado Bar Association for a CLE on international law, human rights and the Russian invasion of Ukraine; all proceeds from the program benefit the Ukrainian Red Cross. Or, head to a trial academy to sharpen your courtroom skills with two academies this month for beginners, experts and everyone in between.


Don’t miss the unveiling of results from a local look at the job market for in-house attorneys by Law Week Colorado, ACC Colorado and Gibson, Arnold & Associates at the Association of Corporate Counsel’s in-house forum. The forum also offers CLE opportunities and receptions to get to know other in-house attorneys. 

Organizers may change events in response to the pandemic. Check with organizers for the most current information on events.
