2018 Associates Campaign: Protecting Colorado’s Most Vulnerable

The March edition of Colorado Lawyer included a compelling article about the Associates Campaign and the important work of CLS’s Health and Elder Law Unit.

“The Legal Aid Foundation of Colorado (LAF) kicks off its 14th Annual Associates Campaign on March 1, 2018. During this month-long campaign, young lawyers will lead efforts in a friendly competition to raise funds for Colorado Legal Services (CLS), the only agency in the state that offers free civil legal services to indigent and underserved populations in every single county. If your firm did not participate last year, there is still time to sign up for the 2018 Associates Campaign by contacting Kelly Bossley, associate director of LAF, at (303-863-9544 or kelly@legalaidfoundation.org. Donations can also be made to LAF by visiting legalaidfoundation.org and selecting “Donate Now.” The funds raised through the Associates Campaign and by LAF  throughout the year are critical to helping CLS continue its work of providing free legal services to thousands of Coloradans who would otherwise be unable to afford legal representation. The case study below helps highlight this important work.
