Law School for Journalists
March 2, 2006

TOPIC: Children’s law yesterday, today and tomorrow

The Colorado Bar Association and the Colorado Judicial Department have teamed up to create “Law School for Journalists,” a series of classes designed to provide reporters with basic information about the legal system and the judiciary. These free 1.5 hour sessions will take place one morning a month at the Colorado Bar Association, 1900 Grant St., 3rd floor conference room. Each session focuses on one primary area of the law.

The March session is scheduled for Thursday, March 2, 2006, 8:30–10 a.m. The topic is children’s law as it is embarking on an era of major reforms. Experts in the field will be discussing juvenile law as it continues its evolution into a sophisticated legal specialty and highly debated body of law.

This month’s distinguished panel will be Theresa Spahn, executive director of the Office of Child’s Representative; Colene Flynn Robinson, University of Colorado School of Law; and a judge experienced in the area of juvenile law. Michael Valdez, CBA’s Director of Legislative Relations will discuss recent and upcoming legislative issues. Full details including an agenda and reference materials will be posted at http://www.courts.state.co.us/exec/media/lawforjournalists.htm just as soon as they are available. We apologize for the delay in announcing this session and posting the materials. We’ve been a bit challenged by extremely full dockets and scheduling combined with February being a short month. We will have more details available early next week.

Stay ahead of the curve and on top of the issues by learning from Colorado’s top legal experts. RSVP to schesney@cobar.org.
