Litigation

Colorado Law has an accomplished faculty teaching a wide range of litigation subjects and experiential learning offerings. In addition to required courses in Civil Procedure and Evidence, Colorado Law offers a wide range of electives, ranging from basic trial skills and pretrial drafting to appellate advocacy and complex class action litigation. Colorado Law’s low student-faculty ratio (9.68 to 1) assures our students enjoy a full opportunity to take these courses requiring close faculty contact and feedback from a faculty with a mix of experienced litigators and leading published experts on modern litigation. Colorado Law also offers a broad array of activities, externships, and internships in litigation-related fields.
