Keynote Speaker

Justice Kourlis

Hon. Rebecca Love Kourlis


Hon. Rebecca Love Kourlis is the Executive Director and a founder of IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System at the University of Denver, which is focused on continuous improvement of our legal system. She has dedicated her career, both in and out of the courts, to ensuring that the system provides justice for all.

Kourlis, a daughter of the West and a Colorado native, began her legal career in her home state, first at a large firm in Denver and then at her own small practice in rural northwest Colorado.

Upon appointment to the bench, she served Colorado’s judiciary for nearly two decades, first as a trial court judge and then as a justice of the Colorado Supreme Court.

During her time in the courts, Kourlis witnessed a system increasingly under attack from outside forces and ultimately failing to deliver the justice she swore to uphold. So, in January 2006, she resigned from the Supreme Court to do something about it.

She will speak on Redesigning the Courts to Meet the Needs of Litigants.
