Bench and Bar Meet & Greet

Network with other new NHBA attorneys and meet members of the judiciary in a social setting!

The New Lawyers Committee cordially invites attorneys who have been with the NHBA less than 2 years to attend this one-of a kind event, after each December Practical Skills.

About Practical Skills

The Practical Skills Course (required by the NH Supreme Court) must be taken within the first two years after being sworn in to the New Hampshire Bar Association. This includes attorneys who have previously practiced in other states and those who are inactive members of the New Hampshire Bar Association.

This course must be taken in person.


By participating in the the Practical Skills course you will receive:

  • 420 General NHMCLE Minutes, reported directly to your ART account (if you attend both days).
  • 120 Ethics/ Professionalism Minutes, reported directly to your ART account
  • 2022 New Hampshire Practice & Procedure Handbook – a $250 value!

To meet the mandatory requirement of 6 hours, including 2 ethics/professionalism hours, you must attend the plenary Wednesday morning session plus a minimum of 2 workshops during Wednesday afternoon and/ or Thursday morning.

Credits earned during Practical Skills count toward the annual NHMCLE requirement, but do not complete the requirement in full.
