The following index was compiled from the official
records of the Colorado Supreme Court. The record is the request by
an attorney to the Supreme Court to be approved to practice law within the
state. The information contained in the record varies from person to
person, but usually shows the name of the person requesting the approval,
the county where they live, the date of the application and the date they
were granted a license in Colorado to practice law.
Additionally, many of the bar admission files have
letters of recommendations from other attorneys, judges or law schools.
You may also find references to where the person practiced law before
coming to Colorado, a letter of approval and acceptance from the Supreme
Court and in a few instances an original copy of their law school diploma
and/or license from a previous state. For the genealogist, this is
one of those secondary sources that could have some valuable information
contained within it.
An earnest effort was made to transcribe each name
correctly. However, some of the handwritten entries were hard to
read, making it difficult to ensure the spelling of the name is correct.
