Current Projects and Task Forces

The work of the Colorado Lawyers Committee is accomplished by lawyers and others who are concerned about providing and increasing opportunities for children, the poor, and other disadvantaged communities through advocacy, negotiation, and litigation.

The Colorado Lawyers Committee currently has more than 20 task forces working on projects in the areas of Poverty & Public Benefits, Civil Rights & Criminal Law, Children’s Rights & Education, Community Development, and Immigration. A number of these task forces need additional volunteers. Substantive expertise is not required. Lawyers and non-lawyers interested in volunteering should click here.
