August 25-26, 2017:  DU Latino Law Alumni Reunion

The University of Denver Sturm College of Law and the Latino Law Alumni Reunion Committee invite you to the Latino Law Alumni Reunion benefiting the Yegge Hispanic Scholarship Fund.

In 1967, at a time when there were only 14 Latino lawyers in the entire state of Colorado, Dean Robert B. Yegge made a commitment to increase the number of Latino lawyers in the southwest by creating an admissions program that supported Latinos who wished to obtain a law degree. The following year, Dean Yegge's admissions program was modeled by the ABA and the AALS, and CLEO—the National Council on Legal Education Opportunity—was born.

To date, approximately 800 Latino men and women have graduated from Denver Law. This success is in no small part due to the generosity of donors such as Dean Yegge, for whom the Yegge Hispanic Scholarship is named. The need for scholarships remains great—through this second reunion and fundraiser, all monies raised will directly benefit the Yegge Hispanic Scholarship Fund and Denver Law students.

The weekend is open to everyone, with a fantastic CLE program on Friday including prominent Colorado judges that has been approved for 8 general and 6 ethics credits. If you are more interested in the CLE program you may buy a ticket for Friday only, but all are welcome to attend all of the activities.

2017 Keynote Speaker
CJI is honored to welcome former South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jean Hoefer Toal as the keynote speaker for the Judicial Excellence for Colorado Dinner.  Chief Justice Toal served 27 years as the state's first female justice and female chief justice.  For more than four decades, Toal has been a game-changer in South Carolina, pulling off the high-wire act of being a successful revolutionary in civil and women’s rights while working within the hidebound and sometimes rarified world of South Carolina’s political and legal system.  Chief Justice Toal modernized the South Carolina court system, bringing greater transparency to the state’s judiciary.
