The Civil Rules Committee is a standing Committee appointed by the Colorado Supreme Court. It has been in existence since 1978. The Committee is charged with the responsibility of periodic review, correcting, updating and improvement of all of the State Court Civil Rules except Appellate Rules [now handled by the Appellate Rules Committee] and the Colorado Rules of Evidence [now handled by the Evidence Rules Committee].  The Committee is chaired by the Honorable Michael H. Berger of the Colorado Court of Appeals.

The Supreme Court Liaison to the Committee is Justice Allison H. Eid, and the Committee is staffed by Jenny Moore, Rules Research Attorney. The Committee is composed of 24 members of varying backgrounds, including: district and county judges; appellate judges; trial court magistrates; a district court clerk; law school professors; and attorney litigators in various areas of practice such as: personal injury; business; family law; legal aid; real estate; collections; professional liability; and general litigation.

The Civil Rules Committee makes its recommendations directly to the Supreme Court.

Rule changes and new rules adopted by the Supreme Court are published in the "Court Business" section of The Colorado Lawyer.
