Social Justice 101: Lunch and Learn

The New Mexico Black Lawyers Association, along with the City of Albuquerque’s Office of Civil Rights, will host a virtual series of “Lunch and Learns” instead of an all day, in-person CLE. The Lunch and Learns will take place virtually from 11:30 AM until 1:30 PM on Wednesday, 11/18 (2.0 G), Thursday, 11/19 (1.0 G & 1.0 E/P), and Friday, 11/20 (2.0 G). Two 1-hour long, social justice themed CLEs will be presented each day.

Registration is $50 per day for attorneys seeking CLE credit, or $125 for all 3 days. There is a discounted registration of $30 per day for NMBLA members, co-sponsors, government attorneys, attorneys not seeking CLE credit, and paralegals, or $65 for all 3 days. Community members can join for free, but must RSVP using the community member registration link.

The deadline to request a refund is November 11, 2020. Please see the CLE agenda and faculty below and register using the registration links that correspond to the days you would like to attend.
