Classroom Law Project ...

is a partnership program of the New Mexico State Bar Foundation and the Center for Civic Values.  We need volunteer attorneys for the partnership program.  Volunteer lawyers are partnered with classroom teachers to meet the following goals:

  • to promote students' recognition of the impact of the law in their daily lives;
  • to increase students' awareness of their rights and responsibilities as citizens; and,
  • to expand students' knowledge and appreciation of the legal system of the United States.

Lawyers collaborate with teachers to make presentations at the grade level and school they have chosen to volunteer. For more information, call (505) 797-6028.
