The Ethics Advisory Committee of the State Bar of New Mexico is a volunteer committee composed of New Mexico lawyers who practice in a variety of areas and are located geographically throughout the state. The committee issues two types of advisory opinions. Informal opinions are issued in response to specific inquires by attorneys admitted to practice in this state. Formal opinions are published for the membership as a whole, and provide general guidance which is more broadly relevant to more attorneys. The committee reviews each formal opinion issued by the ABA Center for Professional Responsibility.
The Mission of the Ethics Advisory Committee is to inform and advise inquiring New Mexico lawyers on the committee’s interpretation of the New Mexico Rules of Professional Conduct, (RPC), as applied to the Inquiring Lawyer’s (IL) duties via a non-binding written informal opinion which represents the consensus of the committee members who considered the request.
