The NHBA Gender Equality Committee seeks nominations for the fifth annual Philip S.

The recipient of the award will be someone who has exhibited a dedication to promoting respect and fair treatment toward all members of the judicial system, and seeks to promote gender equality through leadership and educating others on such issues. The recipient will be someone who has taken the initiative in matters of gender equality and by his/her actions and words has been a role model in this area.


The nominee may be a Bar member, an employee of a law firm or a New Hampshire court, or an employee of a state department or agency which is part of the legal system. The Committee will review the nominations and select the recipient, who will be presented with the award at the Gender Equality Breakfast at the 2008 Midyear Meeting.


Past recipients of the Hollman Award are Honey Hastings (2007), Linda Johnson (2006), Maureen Raiche Manning (2005) and the New Hampshire Public Defender’s Office (2004).
