The NM Commission on Access to Justice (ATJ) is an independent, statewide body dedicated to expanding and improving civil legal assistance in the state.

The Commission meets at least quarterly. Anyone who is interested is welcome to attend our meetings. Our next meeting is January 8, 2021 at 12:00 pm. Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, all meetings are being held remotely with options for video and phone participation. Contact Grace Spulak at aocgcs@nmcourts.gov for more information and to participate.
