This self-administered study was conducted by mail. Surveys were sent to each of the approximately 5,900 lawyers who are currently licensed to practice law in New Mexico. The surveys included a cover letter from the State Bar of New Mexico explaining the purpose of the study. Respondents were asked to return the completed surveys directly to Research & Polling, Inc. in a business reply envelope. A total of 1,256 completed surveys were returned which represents a response rate of 21%.
The survey is available to attorney members of the State Bar of New Mexico. Additional copies may be purchased for $25 plus tax by contacting MVandeventer@nmbar.org or (505) 797-6035.
