Volunteer Attorney Program

Welcome to the Volunteer Attorney Program!

The VAP seeks to increase access to justice for low-income New Mexicans by connecting pro se clients with members of the private bar. It achieves this goal in two ways: (1) direct case placement with pro bono attorneys through its direct representation track and (2) brief advice and counsel with pro bono attorneys through its legal clinic track.

In 2022, VAP is hosting statewide legal teleclinics. See our teleclinic schedule below:
