The Boulder County Bar Association (BCBA) offers career development opportunities, with many events to network and learn. The advantage of bar membership, however, is the unique ability to make a difference in the legal profession - and the community. Through community service, section and committee initiatives and bench/bar interactions, the members of the bar not only develop their skills and their careers, they also serve as advocates for change which reaches far beyond the doors of our law firms.

Someone at the St. Vrain Valley School District had requested they find an attorney at the firm willing to volunteer as the coach for a high school mock trial team at Skyline High School in Longmont.
