“Our Courts,” the joint series of programs sponsored by the Colorado Judicial Institute and the Colorado Bar Association, recently won the ABA’s 2010 Burnham “Hod” Greeley Award, named in honor of a dedicated Bar leader who committed his life and career to promoting trust and confidence in the judicial system. Burnham “Hod” Greeley was an attorney in Hawaii during his career.

Colorado Court of Appeals Judge Russell Carparelli and U.S. District Court Judge Marcia Krieger forged the partnership between CJI and the CBA.

“Our Courts” spotlights volunteer presenters who inform audiences throughout the state about appellate review of trial court decisions and the process for the selection and evaluation of state court judges. “Our Courts” also explains how the federal court system operates. The presentations are impartial; no position regarding any case is taken.

Attorney David P. Hersh is an active participant in this program and is a member of the Board of Directors for the Colorado Judicial Institute.
