For Volunteer Attorneys

The Young Lawyers Division invites you to participate in the 2024 Ask-A-Lawyer Law Day Call-In program throughout the state. We are asking for limited in-person volunteer participation at the State Bar Center or telephonic participation throughout the state. Volunteers in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces and Farmington will be most needed.

We will host up to 10 volunteers at the State Bar Center in Albuquerque. Breakfast will be provided.

An additional 30 volunteers will be needed to participate remotely via call forwarding. The State Bar will forward calls during this time frame to your telephone number of choice so you can volunteer from your home or office! Remote volunteers will be provided eGiftcards.

In-person volunteer orientation and set-up will begin at 8:30 a.m. Telephonic volunteers will receive an instructional video ahead of time to view.

Questions from the public may include the following areas of the law: family law, landlord/tenant disputes, consumer law, personal injury, collections and more. Volunteers will indicate their practice area during sign up.
