Nominations Sought for Daniel Webster Award
The International Law Section of the NH Bar Association is seeking nominations for the 2007 Daniel Webster International Lawyer Award, which honors a NH Bar member “whose contribution to international law demonstrates the spirit of Daniel Webster and whose good works help elevate the standing of the legal profession and serve as an inspiration to others.”
With the practice of law and trade growing ever more global, many members of the NH Bar Association make substantial contributions toward the promotion of peace, international understanding and respect for the rule of law around the world. The contribution of the nominee is not confined to the year preceding the award, but should be current enough to have topical significance.
The 2006 Webster Award recipient was former Merrimack County Attorney and war crimes prosecutor Michael Johnson.
Nominations for this second annual award may be made by any member of the NH Bar, with or without notice to the nominee. The submission should include a description of the contributions made by the nominee and should be forwarded no later than March 1, 2007 to the chair of the nominating committee, Attorney Susan Goff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
