I Want to Volunteer
Volunteerism is an important value in our profession. When lawyers are engaged in their community, there are benefits to the lawyer, to the people and organizations that they serve, and for the profession as a whole.

Colorado’s Pro Bono Pipeline
The profession, courts and bar associations are seeking ways to engage senior lawyers with the job to do pro bono work. Recognizing the need to address the changing legal profession and striving to create innovative and meaningful jobs to improve access to justice, the Succession to Service Program seeks to catalyze Colorado’s senior lawyers and judges to provide service to nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public service entities.
The Colorado Succession to Service Program is a collaborative project between the Colorado Bar Association (CBA), Colorado Attorney Mentoring Program (CAMP), Metro Volunteer Lawyers (MVL), and the Colorado Access to Justice Commission.
The goal of the Succession to Service Program is to establish a structured, statewide program for Colorado’s experienced lawyers and judges to partner with nonprofit organizations, courts, and other public interest entities to influence the continuing need for equal access to justice.
Lawyers and judges who are retired or transitioning toward retirement are matched with nonprofit organizations, legal services programs, and the courts to provide essential legal assistance to underserved populations. Using their specialized skills and experience to do engaging pro bono work, participating lawyers remain active members of the legal community and help Colorado’s courts and service providers expand and enhance the pro bono legal services they offer.
