Leaders of Tomorrow – Learn from the Leaders of Today

The NH Bar Association’s Leadership Academy has graduated five classes of emerging leaders from the legal community. Leadership Academy Learn from Leaders of today: governors, judges, legislators, regulators, CEOs, authors, educators, and other leaders from throughout New Hampshire have spent time conversing with Leadership Academy classes.

This committee monitors the integration of newly admitted members of the Bar into both the Association and the legal profession and plans meetings, provides materials, and educational and social programs to assist new admittees and make them feel welcome to the Bar Association. It also oversees the operation of the Bar’s Mentor Program for new admittees. The New Lawyers Committee is the New Hampshire affiliate of the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division. The Committee usually meets the fourth Thursday of the month, 5:15 – 6:30 pm in Manchester or Concord.

“Traps for the Unwary” is a publication of the New Lawyers Committee, which is intended to aid in the practice of law in New Hampshire.

The sixth edition of “Traps”, published in August 2015, identifies some of the traps into which new and experienced lawyers may fall in their everyday practice of law.

Mentors are matched with associates based on area(s) of practice and geographic location. Mentors serve as “sounding boards” and are available, without charge, for advice, direction and counseling on the practical, everyday problems which typically arise in the practice of a new lawyer. It’s also a great way to network and meet other attorneys and court personnel in your area. The program currently has over 50 volunteer mentors from across the state. To learn more about the Mentor Program, download the Mentor Program Brochure.
