Team CBA-CLE Scores a “Hat Trick” with Three International Awards, Including One for Legal Connection

The staff of Colorado Bar Association Continuing Legal Education (CBA-CLE) has so many enthusiastic hockey fans (including recreational players, coaches, referees, and those who just watch) that we thought it appropriate to have a hockey theme to celebrate when we won three awards in 2011. The “Hat Trick” from the international organization, the Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA), included awards in the categories of Publications, Technology (for this blog!), and Public Interest.

Dawn McKnight, Assistant Executive Director of CBA-CLE says, “Our staff does an incredible job and we could not have won the awards without the help of the hundreds of attorneys and legal professionals in Colorado who contribute their time and resources to the projects.  There are too many people to name that volunteer countless hours for us, but we are extremely grateful and lucky to work with such talented and dedicated people. It’s very rewarding to be recognized by this international organization for the work we do and especially to win three in one year!  We’ll continue to work hard to achieve our ‘goals’ of providing quality legal education programs and publications for our legal community.”
