Our story

Community. Respect. Progress.

Since its founding in 1978, the New Mexico Hispanic Bar Association has flourished into the leading minority bar association in New Mexico.


The NMHBA Board of Directors is comprised of up to twenty-four voting members and a student member from the Mexican American Law Student Association at the University of New Mexico School of Law. Around three hundred attorneys and students are members of the NMHBA, coming from diverse backgrounds and areas of practice.



Some of our members are first-generation lawyers. Others practice in rural areas of New Mexico. And others are allies - people who care about diversity in the legal profession. We have one thing in common: a passion for promoting the education and development of Hispanic legal professionals.


Our vision? Promote an established legacy of equality and empowerment for Hispanics in education.
