This course was researched and written by the National Judicial Education Program to Promote Equality for
Women and Men in the Courts, a project of Legal Momentum in cooperation with the National Association
of Women Judges. Web-based instructional course design, web design and programming, and the New Mexico
state-specific materials were provided by
the Rozier E. Sanchez Judicial Education Center of New Mexico Institute
of Public Law at the University of New Mexico Law School.
An effort of this magnitude comes to fruition only with the help of many people. We are grateful
