Op-Ed in NH Bar News by NHWBA President
We continue to work to ensure our members' voices are represented as the New Hampshire Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Rules considers language changes to Proposed Rule 8.4(g), which would prohibit discriminating and harassing conduct by attorneys.
The New Hampshire Bar Association's Bar News has published an op-ed entitled, "Adopt Professional Conduct Rule to Promote Fairness and Equality Across Bar" by NHWBA's board president, Attorney Christina Ferrari.
If you are interested in getting involved (testifying, writing letters, articles, etc.), please reach out to NHWBA President Christina Ferrari at (603) 665-8827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us in providing Thanksgiving baskets to families in need. You can either assemble a basket yourself, or build one or more with your office or firm, which will be given to New Horizons for distribution.
Completed baskets can be dropped off in Concord, Manchester, or Nashua on November 14th or 15th. Please sign up and read more here.
You can also sign up to volunteer at New Horizons in Manchester on Saturday, November 17th to help distribute baskets. Multiple shift options are available.
If you have any questions, please e-mail Kat Hedges or Lyndsay Robinson.
