The Colorado Lawyers Committee offers many meaningful volunteer opportunities for transactional attorneys:
- Through the Nonprofit Working Group, volunteer attorneys provide transactional-type legal services to small nonprofit organizations that might not otherwise afford legal services. Click here to learn more or volunteer.
- The Nonprofit Legal Audit Clinic is a half-day program for small nonprofits with limited operating budgets. Teams of volunteer transactional attorneys review a checklist with participating nonprofits to evaluate their legal health. Clinics are held in January and July.

Many transactional lawyers also participate in other Colorado Lawyers Committee projects, including:
- Project Homeless Connect, a one-day event sponsored by the City of Denver that connects homeless individuals to services. The Colorado Lawyers Committee co-sponsors the Legal Resource Area and Homeless Court Components of Project Homeless Connect with the Association of Corporate Counsel-Colorado Chapter.

- Through the Hate Crimes Education Task Force, Colorado Lawyers Committee volunteers present trials based on a fictional case arising from a violation of Colorado’s Hate/Bias-Motivated Crimes Statute to middle school students around the state.
