Thank you for your membership with the Denver Bar Association. Your dedication, knowledge, and commitment to the legal community have no match.

Door prizes such as an iPad mini or a $100 CBA-CLE coupon will be given away at most events and CLE programs.

CLE programs are limited to members only. DBA Members may attend for free, with a suggested donation of $15 to Metro Volunteer Lawyers, and CBA members who are not DBA members may attend for $15. Lunch will be provided at noon-hour events.
