The Craig Othmer Scholarship was established in 2008 jointly by the Public Law Section and Craig's family to honor him. It is intended to provide summer funding for a UNM law student to pursue a project in public interest law. Craig was a proud 1974 graduate of UNM law and was very active in the Public Law Section and community service throughout his career. While on the Section Board, he was instrumental in establishing the Public Lawyer of the year award because he believed public lawyers deserve more recognition.
