2008 Midyear Meeting Highlights

President Eleanor Dahar officiates at 2008 Midyear Meeting

The Feb. 15 Midyear Membership Meeting – which took place after the last Bar News deadline – featured an address by Gov. Lynch, timely CLEs and a lively Professionalism Day program.


NHBA President Eleanor Dahar presented special awards to volunteers of the Rule 170 program and to small- and solo-firm lawyers, recognizing their contributions to community life.


Other honorees were Katherine Stearns, of New London, who received the L. Jonathan Ross Award for Outstanding Commitment to Legal Services for the Poor; and Aniko Bouley, of Goff & Wilson in Concord, who received the Paralegal Professionalism award.


See page 10 for detailed descriptions of the Distinguished Pro Bono Service and Pro Bono “Rising Star” award recipients.


At the NHBA CLE programs, a panel of three Superior Court judges, including Chief Justice Robert Lynn, participated in a dialogue with Bar members on the Rule 170 alternative dispute program and the medical malpractice screening process. (See article on Rule 170 on page 25. An article on the med-mal panels is coming in a future Bar News issue.)


The CLE on land-use appeals featured a candid discussion of the challenge of a trial court second-guessing a zoning or planning board decision.


Evaluations were overwhelmingly positive for the morning’s CLE Professionalism Day program, featuring “humorist at law” Sean Carter who moderated the discussion with Bar members on troubling professionalism dilemmas.
