Sharing Lessons in Law


Teacher Emily Bair, of Pathfinder Academy in Epsom, says that having Attorney Jack P. Crisp, of Crisp & Associates and NHBA past president, address her  class as part of Law Day on May 4 was a valuable learning experience for her seventh- and eighth-grade students. The civil litigator and business lawyer, shown in the photo below, discussed his path to a law career and what his job entails and answered numerous student questions, which included queries about his most challenging cases and children’s law issues.


Attorney Heather M. Burns, of Hatfield & Upton in Concord, shown in the photo above, leads teacher Judy Leidner’s first-grade students at Eastman School in Concord in a discussion on a case involving a stolen bicycle based on the ABA lesson “Due Process Freedoms: Seeking Facts to Solve Mysteries.”  Her second-grade son, Thomas Burns, attends the school and was listening to classmate Matthew Quirk’s father, Attorney Brian M. Quirk, of Preti Flaherty Beliveau & Pachios of Concord, giving a lesson on the law. The young Burns’ father Attorney David J. Burns, a Concord practitioner, was across town speaking to elementary students at the Rumford School.


The theme for Law Day this year was “Liberty under Law: Empowering Youth, Assuring Democracy.” A Lawyer and Judge in Every School, an activity coordinated by the NHBA Law-Related Education Program, pairs legal professionals with classrooms throughout the state to discuss concepts of law, rights and responsibilities of citizenship, and additional legal issues consistent with student interest and the course curriculum.
