John Draper received the University of New Mexico's Zia Award today. John was recognized for his "reputation as the dean of water law in New Mexico." The University noted that his reputation extends beyond New Mexico as "one of the preeminent natural resources lawyers in the country."
The Zia Award honors distinguished New Mexico residents with a UNM degree. Among this year’s six other Zia Award winners were Damon Martinez, the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico, and Chief Justice Barbara Vigil of the New Mexico Supreme Court.
