CWBA LIFT! Mentorship Program


   Are you in need of mentorship, or do you want to give back by mentoring? If so, the CWBA LIFT! Mentorship Program is for you.

The CWBA and its Mentorship Committee members are excited to announce a third launch of CWBA LIFT!, the CWBA's mentoring program and partnership with the Colorado Attorney Mentoring Program (CAMP). We are excited to share this program with you again for 2021!

Participating in CWBA LIFT! offers you a unique opportunity to engage with a CWBA member in a mentorship experience geared toward women lawyers. Please take a look at our curriculum online here. It was designed specifically to meet the needs of women lawyers.  

The application period is open December 15, 2020 through January 15, 2021 and is open to CWBA members only. Our virtual kickoff event for matched mentorship pairs will be February 2, 2021 at 5:30 p.m. - save the date!

The application process is simple! Click here:

If you would like to be both a mentor and a mentee, please complete both applications. Mentors can earn 9 general, 2 ethics CLE credits when completed within one year. Click here to read our LIFT! FAQs.

The third cohort of the CWBA LIFT! Mentorship Program will launch on February 1, 2021, and run through January 31, 2022. 

The program has two tracks from which to choose:

  • CLE-Accredited Track: requires following the structured CWBA LIFT! Curriculum, available here.
  • Non-CLE Track: an informal mentorship with no curriculum, still a part of the CWBA LIFT! program.

(Please Note: the CWBA LIFT! program is for attorney members only and is not open to law students. The Mentorship Committee is developing new mentorship and sponsorship opportunities for our law student members.)

This is the only time this program is offered each year. Don't miss your chance!

Mentor/mentee pairs receive monthly support from the CWBA. In addition, LIFT! members will have the opportunity to forge relationships with other LIFT! members beyond their mentor/mentee pairing with invitations to events exclusively for LIFT! program members.

We need your participation to make this a true success, so please join us in this great and unique membership benefit.

For more information or to get involved in the Mentorship Committee, please contact: 

CWBA Mentorship Committee Co-Chairs: 
Magistrate Michal Lord-Blegen and Elizabeth Meck
