The University of New Mexico School of Law Distinguished Achievement Award

Posted On By

On Friday October 20th, NITA Board of Trustee Barbara Bergman was honored at The University of New Mexico School of Law’s Distinguished Achievement Awards Dinner. NITA’s Associate Executive Director, Wendy McCormack, who attended the event stated, “It was such a privilege to be in a room of 400 people honoring Barbara for her law career and extraordinary teaching impact in New Mexico and beyond. Her reach and influence at the UNM Law School and in the NM legal community is a tremendous accomplishment. To share the night amongst her closest friends and colleagues was quite a celebration of her talents. NITA is lucky to have her as a committed faculty member and Board Trustee.”

Proceeds from the Distinguished Achievement Awards Dinner help fund the Law Alumni Association’s programming and full-tuition merit scholarships at the Law School.

Congratulations once again to Barbara on this amazing achievement!
