Justice For All Challenge Do you sometimes wish the general public held lawyers in higher regard?

One way the NH Bar Association is trying to improve the image of the profession is by making sure people are aware of how much legal help lawyers here provide, without charge, to low-income residents, nonprofits and public interest groups. We know the spirit of volunteerism is strong among lawyers in New Hampshire. But we need your help to tell that story.

Sign up today for the Justice for All Challenge, perform at least 30 hours of pro bono service in a number of ways over the next year, return to the website to record your time, and that's it!



Can you spare two hours of your time in June? Volunteer attorneys are needed to host Lawline from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, June 11. You can answer calls from your office, your home or meet at the Bar Center.

Please contact Lisha, 715-3229 for more details or to sign up.



Bruce Dorner, a Londonderry attorney who frequently writes and lectures on law office management, will be the featured speaker at the NHBA's Solo & Small Firm Discussion group at noon on Wednesday, April 23 at the Bar Center.

Bring your lunch and some questions and thoughts on law office technology and other practice management issues. Dorner, who was written and spoken nationally on law office tech topics, will gladly field your questions.

RSVP requested but not required. Also - send your law tech questions to Member Services Coordinator Rosemarie Atwood.
