Pro Bono Volunteer Form
New Mexico has an aspirational goal for all attorneys to provide 50 hours of pro bono service each year, or in the alternative, to make financial contributions that support legal services for low-income New Mexicans. As the number of New Mexicans facing poverty increases, so does the demand for legal assistance for clients who have serious legal issues but who cannot afford to pay an attorney. Pro bono attorneys are essential in meeting this need and bridging the justice gap.
What We Provide
The VAP offers a number of incentives to attorneys that handle pro bono matters. We currently offer free CLEs for pro bono attorneys, and attorneys that accept cases are covered by New Mexico Legal Aid’s malpractice insurance. We also provide access to research tools, office space, mentors, and co-counseling opportunities.
