In the first part of this 2021 series of 5 CLEs focusing on navigating the judicial application process in Colorado, come hear from a variety of judicial officers as they share their varied stories about how they came to apply to the bench, their experiences and advice regarding the application process, why diversity on the bench matters, and what you can be doing now to prepare for when you decide to apply.
