The UNM Clinical Law Program has compiled a list of attorneys who will provide pro bono or reduced fee representation to clients we cannot serve. Our primary mission is educational; we cannot accept every client who seeks our services. Some individuals earn too much money to qualify for clinic services but do not have resources to hire private attorneys at regular rates. Fee generating cases, workers compensation, personal injury and employment cases are inappropriate for clinic representation.
Your name and areas of expertise will be placed on our list of participating attorneys. We will provide your name along with the name of at least one other attorney to the individual, orally or in writing. In some cases, we may call to ask if you are available to represent a client. In all cases, you decide whether to accept the referral. You are responsible for your own fee and cost arrangements with the client.
Also, we would like to increase our competence by having lawyers to serve as resources. If you agree to serve as a mentor, we will give your name to students and faculty when your expertise is needed.
Tell us how you can help. Submit the Access to Justice Application Form to offer your support for these projects.
The UNM Law School appreciates your willingness to help. We look forward to hearing from you.
