Dinner with a Judge program: March 24, 202 DWJ is canceled.

The NHBA New Lawyers Committee hosts the popular Dinner with a Judge series. This is a unique opportunity for new lawyers in the NHBA community to become acquainted with a member of the judiciary in a relaxed setting. The event is kept intentionally small to allow for conversation and for each attendee to get to know their peers, the New Lawyers Committee representative and the judge in attendance.
