CDLA Diverse Leaders Scholarship Program

CDLA is proud to announce its Diverse Leaders Scholarship Program with the goal of increasing diverse leadership within the CDLA. For the 2021-2022 year, CDLA's Board of Directors will select two individuals for admission into the program.

Individuals selected into the program will commit to serving CDLA for a two year term by: (a) serving on the Professionalism & Education, Amicus or Legislative Committee; or (b) supporting the Conference Chair for the CDLA summer conference; or (c) assisting with CDLA's annual Trial Academy.

In return, CDLA will waive membership fees for the two years of the program and will pay registration and hotel fees for the member to attend CDLA's summer conference in the second year of the program. (If not a current member, you will automatically be enrolled as a member for 2 years)

What to do if your email service provider is blocking our listserv postings

It is an unfortunate consequence of everyone's email servers fighting against the barrage of unsolicited and/or malicious email that we experience in today's digital world. But if you find yourself suddenly not receiving posts, the blacklist that your firm or email service provider uses may prevent the delivery of messages from CDLA's listserv posts. Here is a link with information and potential solutions.

CDLA's Diversity Statement

The Colorado Defense Lawyers Association has the goal of promoting diversity within the legal community and assisting charitable organizations with a relation to the civil defense community. Charity, outreach and diversity must be viewed as a perpetual practice rather than reaching certain numerical markers. Charity, outreach and diversity efforts require sustained commitment, leadership, innovation and financial support. Through the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association Foundation ("Foundation"), we are committed to leveraging our collective efforts through partnerships and alliances in order to foster leadership, awareness and communications enabling an environment of good will and inclusiveness within our Association membership. We also are committed to using the Foundation to advance charitable interests or organizations with a relation to the civil defense community, as determined by the Foundation.
