Colorado bar foundation

Annual Bar Fellows Dinner


Each year, the Foundation sponsors a dinner to celebrate its contributors and to honor two lawyers who have made an important difference in our legal community. The Award of Merit is the highest award given by the Colorado Bar Association and recognizes a current CBA member for outstanding service or contributions to the association, the legal profession, the administration of justice or the community. The Gary McPherson Award for Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year recognizes outstanding contributions to the legal profession and the community by a young Colorado lawyer. To respect the safety of our supporters, the Foundation cancelled the 2020 Annual Bar Fellows Dinner. Stay tuned for news as to the 2021 Annual Bar Fellows Dinner, which is tentatively scheduled for September 25, 2021.
