Each of the volumes in this series sets out the Colorado treatment of a different area of law. The first few volumes cover the laws of Colorado corporations, LLCs and LLPs, and are written by well known and long time Colorado attorneys Cathy and James Krendl. Other titles cover Colorado civil rules, litigation and trial practice; personal injury, torts and insurance; as well as appellate, bankruptcy, criminal, employment, and family law, among others. Each individual subject is authored by a resident Colorado expert who has practiced in the field for many years.
Why you should use it:
Subject treatises contain a detailed analysis of all the law relating to a particular topic. They will provide annotations that cover case law, statutes and regulations that best illustrate a particular point of law, but there won’t always be Colorado-specific examples. In the Colorado Methods of Practice Series, all of the annotations refer you to Colorado law on point.
Where you can find it:
The print set is located on the 3rd floor of the Westminster Law Library under the call number KFC1880 .C652, as well as at the Reference Desk.
The Westlaw database is COPRAC, or it can be found on the Colorado tab under the heading Colorado treatises and practice materials.
