Colorado Supreme Court

Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel

Promoting Professionalism. Protecting the Public.

Attorney Regulation Counsel welcomes new employee and presents him with unique opportunity

New position part of combined effort to strengthen proactive initiative in Colorado


DENVER – The Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court is pleased to announce the appointment of Zak Bratton as Education and Outreach Coordinator.


The Education and Outreach Coordinator position is part of an active initiative within the Office to promote a proactive partnership between the Office, lawyers and the community.


Previously defined as Information Resources Coordinator, the newly-titled Education and Outreach Coordinator is dedicated to the development of educational programs and outreach for both legal professionals and the public.


Jim Coyle, Attorney Regulation Counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court, said he believes innovations like this are crucial alongside statewide efforts to continue to evolve the office's role toward proactive regulation.


"I envision the development of our educational materials, including presentations and videos, are part of the initiative to help Colorado lawyers," he said.


Bratton will be responsible for generating educational materials for all facets within the office: attorney regulation and admissions, continuing legal education and applicants to the Colorado bar through attorney registration.


The position also develops a variety of web content including educational videos, content and photos for the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel website and social media, and website user feedback analysis, to name a few.


“Basically if there’s something going on with the Office, I’m there,” Bratton said. “My goal is to produce content that will be relevant to this office, as well as to our readers, whether they are attorneys, law students, aspiring legal professionals or individuals seeking more information about what we do.”


Content production isn’t solely based on the Office though, Bratton said. The position requires him to constantly be in the know about new initiatives, programs, rule changes, news or reports that effect the legal professional and its stakeholders. With prior experience in state judiciary, Bratton said he is no stranger to shrinking legal terminology into bite-sized bits of information for public consumption through a proactive approach. 


Prior to joining the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel, Bratton began his career with the Colorado Judicial Branch in 2014 as a Court Judicial Assistant for the 10th Judicial District. He served a wide range of roles throughout the court before being promoted to Self-Represented Litigant Coordinator in 2016. Bratton received his undergraduate degree from Colorado State University-Pueblo.


Bratton's appointment was effective August 15, 2017.
