Denver Legal Night is an open house where volunteer attorneys provide free legal and referral information to people who cannot afford legal services. Areas of law addressed commonly include:
- Consumer and bankruptcy
Denver Legal Night is a terrific opportunity to assist those in need while also broadening your own knowledge by working with experienced and committed lawyers.Since 2006, over 1,000 volunteer attorneys have helped more than 22,130 people in the Denver-metro area. We cannot be successful without volunteers like you!
Denver Legal Night is co-sponsored by the Colorado Lawyers Committee, Denver Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, and the Denver Access to Justice Committee.
What Volunteers Do
Volunteers help determine significant legal issues, refer individuals to legal services, and answer other questions about the legal process. Volunteers do not provide legal advice or representation. You do not need expertise in a particular area of law in order to participate. For more details about the role of volunteers at Legal Night, view the Legal Night New Volunteer Orientation.

Who We Serve
Individuals are served on a first-come, first-serve basis. Most participants arrive with very specific questions and legal issues. Some speak English, but many do not. Interpreters are provided whenever possible. You’ll be surprised how much assistance you can provide to someone who is confused or unfamiliar with the U.S. legal system.
