2008 Midyear Meeting

 Professionalism Dialogue  Hollman Award Winner
 

Sean Carter, humorist at law, entertained and educated attorneys who attended the Professionalism Day event at the Midyear Meeting.  After reviewing the NH Lawyer Professionalism Creed in a light-hearted way (but with serious undertones), Carter led a discussion covering three hypothetical situations: how to deal with an unprepared/unprofessional colleague; how to respond to allegations from opposing counsel which cast a slanted and unfavorable light on your pleadings; how to respond to a heated public exchange from opposing counsel.

Judge Kathleen A. McGuire, the featured speaker at the 2008 Midyear Meeting Gender Equality Breakfast, told of her experience with the Vologda (Russia) judges’ exchange program.  She began working with Russian judges (70 percent of whom are women) in 1993 and has seen many significant changes in the judicial system.  She said that domestic violence is a major problem in Russia, but that at least it has now been recognized as coming under the rule of law.  Gender equality has only recently begun to be discussed.
