Seeking Hollman Award Nominations
The NHBA Gender Equality Committee seeks nominations for the fifth annual Philip S. Hollman Equality Award. Established on the occasion of Judge Hollman’s retirement from the Superior Court bench in 2003, the award is designed to honor Judge Hollman’s efforts as a stalwart advocate for gender equality in the legal system.
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).
Send your nominations by Dec. 18, 2007 to either of the Gender Equality Committee’s co-chairs, Danielle L. Pacik (email@example.com) or Elizabeth Baker (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please include a brief description of the nominee’s qualifications for the award.
