The Larry DeMuth Endowment

In 2015, CJI partnered with longtime board member and philanthropist Larry DeMuth to create The Larry DeMuth Endowment for the Education of the Colorado Judicial System. The goal was to create a source for judicial education funding that was not dependent on the state government's limited resources.

Over the years, CJI has awarded more than $500,000 in funding so Colorado judges and court staff can learn from programs and experts including:

  • National Judicial College education and training on important issues judges face in their roles; 
  • conferences on special topics, e.g., self-represented litigants, probate courts, and water courts; 
  • nationally recognized speakers such as Judge Victoria Pratt, an expert in procedural justice and alternative sentencing.

CJI has also helped fund special projects such as video orientation for Judicial Nominating Commission members.
