CJI Membership — Join Today and Support Our Colorado Courts!

Who We Are

The Colorado Judicial Institute (CJI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, statewide community organization with the mission to promote excellence, equity, impartiality, and public trust in Colorado's courts through outreach, education, and engagement.

CJI members include business and civic leaders, attorneys, judges, and everyday citizens who support CJI's mission and programs that foster judicial education and excellence, diversity on the bench, and public education about our Colorado courts and the rule of law. This includes advocacy on behalf of Colorado’s merit selection and retention process for judges, which helps keep the courtroom free from the influence of politics and special interests.
