*** What are the ramifications of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission? Join us on Feb. 2
Last week’s Supreme Court decision has created a firestorm of new questions. What does the opinion say? How will it affect state constitutional provisions? What new reporting and compliance issues will it raise? Panelists Ed Ramey (Isaacson Rosenbaum), Martha Tierney (Kelly Garnsey Hubbell & Lass), Richard Westfall (Hale Friesen) and Maurie Knaizer (State Services Section, Colorado Attorney General’s Office) will discuss these issues on Tuesday, Feb. 2, noon to 1 p.m. in the CBA-CLE large classroom, 1900 Grant St., third floor. One CLE credit. Register here.

*** February's Tuesdays at the Bar Programs 
These Tuesday lunch programs often offer CLE credits on a variety of general and ethics topics in the practice of law. Programs are on select Tuesdays from noon to 1 p.m. at DBA offices, 1900 Grant St., ninth floor. RSVP by noon the day before the program via e-mail to or call (303) 860-1115, ext. 727.  Programs are $15 for members; nonmembers pay $25.
