Babies in Law School (BILS) is a support group for law students who have a baby (or young children) while in law school (for both moms and dads). Students will be able to share information about housing, child care, schools, and breastfeeding. Furthermore, students are encouraged to share their experiences with balancing school, career and family.
This group strives to connect throughout the year so that student-parents and their families can form support networks and friendships.
UNM Children's Campus for Early Care & Education (UNMCC) provides child care to children ages six weeks to 10 years. UNMCC serves students, faculty, and staff families. The average wait list time ranges from about two-and-a-half to three years. Priority is given first to families who have siblings currently enrolled in the center and then to families with at least one parent currently an active student.
