Please note that we recognize the names that families have provided to us or the Supreme Court directly notifying of an individuals passing. If we do not have a name included, it is not deliberate. We may have just not received the formal information and will include any missing members in next year's presentation. We want to honor and recognize all members.

Attorney Memorial Scholarship

To honor and in memory of passed New Mexico attorneys, the Senior Lawyers Division has established an Attorney Memorial Scholarship for third-year UNM School of Law students. Recipients are selected based on their academic performance, career plan and essay submission.

Contact Member Services at to notify the SLD of a member’s passing and to provide current contact information for surviving family members and colleagues for attorneys who passed between Nov. 2022 through the present.
