The New Hampshire Bar Foundation is seeking nominations from members of the New Hampshire Bar for the 2008 Robert E. Kirby and Frank Rowe Kenison awards to be presented at the Bar Foundation’s 31st Annual Dinner on May 8, 2008. The deadline for nominations is February 1, 2008.


The Kirby Award recognizes lawyers, age 35 or younger, whose traits of civility, courtesy, perspective, and excellent advocacy are distinguishing characteristics of their professional practice. The Robert E. Kirby Award was established in 1996 to honor the memory of Bob Kirby, a young lawyer “of great skill, civility, and good humor” who died that year at the age of 35.

He was an excellent legal thinker who committed his life to the legal system, education about the law and the promise of equal justice for all.
