Practical Skills CLE Provides Just That - Practical Skills

The Grappone Center in Concord was the site of the NHBA-CLE department’s Practical Skills Seminar, where many new attorneys - those with five years or less experience in New Hampshire - were greeted with a warm welcome by NHBA-CLE Director Joanne Hinnendael and NHBA Director Jeannine McCoy, who addressed the crowd after lunch.

The event was also an opportunity for new attorneys to become acquainted with the workings of the New Hampshire Bar Association, since many of the NHBA’s departments offered informational booths during the seminar breaks.

Meet the Bench and Bar

Shortly after the Practical Skills seminars, the NHBA New Lawyers’ Committee and Member Services department hosted a Bench and Bar Meet and Greet, giving new lawyers the chance to meet many of the judges from NH’s district court, superior court, probate court and Supreme Court.

NH Supreme Court Chief Justice John Broderick opened the event with a brief welcome to the new attorneys, followed by a few remarks concerning the state of the legal profession.

"Many in the public cannot afford you," he said. "So I ask of you this: tomorrow morning, call the NHBA Pro Bono department and ask for one case."

This was followed by another welcome by US District Court Justice Stephen McAuliffe and a reception where the judges and attorneys could meet in an informal atmosphere.
