The New Mexico Lawyer is published quarterly in the Bar Bulletin. Each issue focuses on a single topic of current interest to a broad segment of the legal community. Contributing authors are primarily members of the State Bar of New Mexico; however, recognized experts, government representatives and leaders of private and public organizations and institutions are also featured from time to time.

The State Bar of New Mexico Board of Editors welcomes submissions and ideas for topics and encourages Bar members and groups to become involved in the publication of the New Mexico Lawyer.

The ideas and opinions expressed in the New Mexico Lawyer are not necessarily endorsed by the Board of Editors or by the State Bar of New Mexico.
