Law Week Lookahead: January 2023

The new year is here and Colorado’s legal community has events to kick 2023 off right. 


This month, CLE programs look at attorney mental health and well-being. The Colorado LGBT Bar Association hosts a program on how to heal in the wake of trauma following the Club Q shooting. And the Colorado Attorney Mentoring Program looks at how personal and professional identity intertwine in the legal industry. 

Other programs cover new and emerging topics like the legalization of psychedelic therapeutics in Colorado, unbundled legal services, AI machines and confidentiality and more. Or, connect with others at happy hours, book clubs and more. 

Virtual, in-person and hybrid events are around this month to connect however you’re comfortable. 

Events may change. Check with organizers for the most current information about an event. 

We update our calendar on a rolling basis — check out Law Week’s events calendar for the most up-to-date listings. Have an event to announce or include in our calendar? Let us know.
