*** Bump Into Some Judges: Lead a Court Tour
A great way to give back to the profession, impact the community and get down in the trenches is to lead a tour of the City and County Building. The DBA needs volunteer attorneys to guide students and provide information on the courts and judicial process. The tours last about 2–3 hours. The kids love it! Training is provided. Call Carolyn Gravit at (303) 824-5340 or e-mail
