One Women, One Case, Once A Year


One Woman, One Case, Once A Year will pair high impact policy cases affecting women and girls with attorneys serving in a pro bono capacity and law student interns to litigate these cases.

The program has three major objectives: (1) to use the judicial system to help develop strong policies affecting women and girls in high impact areas such as fair pay, pregnancy fairness in the workplace, women’s access to healthcare, sports equality, and economic security of domestic violence survivors; (2) to give each member of the NM Bar the opportunity to utilize up to 50 pro bono hours per year to help women have access to justice and to engage at least 6 law students each year as public interest law interns; and (3) to help train law students and practicing attorneys in public interest law addressing pressing issues in poverty, education, healthcare, and economic security.
