The NHWBA was established in 1998 to promote and support the advancement and interests of women in the legal community through leadership, professional interaction, education and the exchange of ideas between our members and the community.  We offer our members opportunities for personal and professional growth through networking and professional development forums, continuing legal education seminars, and public service initiatives that focus on improving the lives of women and children in New Hampshire.  Our membership is comprised of attorneys in all areas of law, judges, educators, government officials and law students from across the state.  We invite you to learn more about the NHWBA by exploring our website or joining us at an upcoming event.
