Attorney Referral Member Application Form

Thank you for your interest in New Mexico Lawyers for the Arts (NMLA). NMLA serves the legal needs of artists and arts organizations, to educate artists and arts organizations about their legal rights and responsibilities, and to promote closer contact and understanding among members of the legal profession and the arts community. NMLA, through its network of volunteer attorneys, provides pro bono and tiered-rate legal assistance to artists, musicians, songwriters, photographers, sculptors, dancers, filmmakers, painters, actors and artists from many other disciplines who would not otherwise be able to afford legal representation and counseling about their rights and interests in their works. NMLA also makes referrals to experienced attorneys for artists and arts organizations that do not qualify for free legal services. NMLA conducts educational seminars and workshops on numerous legal and business-related topics. NMLA also organizes clinics where artists can meet with volunteer attorneys and accountants to discuss various issues and legal questions. NMLA also will provide mediation services as a means of resolving artists’ legal disputes. We sincerely appreciate your willingness to volunteer your time and expertise.

  • If you would like to become a Member Referral attorney:

    Many of our volunteer attorneys have joined NMLA as a “Member Referral Attorney” so that they can receive mailings of upcoming seminars, workshops and CLEs, invitations to social events (a great way to meet attorneys, artists and other entertainment professionals) and notifications on seminars and workshops. NMLA also makes tiered rate and paying referrals to interested Member attorneys for artists and arts organizations that do not qualify for pro bono assistance.
