NMHBA Accepting Judicial Candidates' Requests for Endorsements

The NMHBA is now accepting requests from judicial candidates who are seeking endorsements. One of the goals of the NMHBA is to increase the representation of Hispanics in judicial office; and thus increase the diversity of leadership in the legal community. While the NMHBA's principal goal in endorsing judicial candidates is to promote the selection of qualified Hispanic candidates across New Mexico, it will also consider endorsement requests from qualified non-Hispanic candidates.

A written request for an endorsement must be received no later than sixty (60) calendar days before the election for which the endorsement is sought. The NMHBA's Judicial Election Endorsement Procedures and Guidelines are included here, as well as the Judicial Endorsement Election Questionnaire.

Please click here to view the endorsement procedures and guidelines.

2014 NMHBA/UNM Summer Law Camp

The 2014 application for the NMHBA/UNM Summer Law Camp is now available. Applications are due on or before April 18, 2014.

The two camps will take place on June 8-13, 2014 and June 22-27, 2014. Students from across New Mexico who will be enrolled as 7th or 8th grade students in the Fall of 2014 are eligible to apply. Law Camp is a residential camp for youth interested in exploring the world of law. Youth stay on campus in the residence halls and are engaged in educational, recreation, leadership, team building, and community service activities. At the end of the camp, the students participate in a mock trial. Students also witness New Mexico's legal system in action by meeting with judges and practicing attorneys, and visiting federal and state courthouses. Please encourage students to apply!
