Law Practice Management

CAMP Program Curriculum includes an emphasis on supporting Solo and Small Firm Attorneys as they launch, grow, and manage their practices.

For additional resources on Law Practice Management, visit the Colorado Bar Association’s Department of Law Practice Management and Risk Management.

Colorado has a new lawyer self-assessment program designed to help lawyers better serve clients and simplify their professional lives. The self-assessments ask lawyers whether they have the ethical infrastructure to address these risks. If the lawyers do not, the self-assessments identify certain Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct and educational resources in the form of formal ethics opinions, bar journal articles, and manuals published by the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel, to give specific guidance on these risks.

Please click the link to access the lawyer self-assessment.
