Chief Justice Broderick at National Justice Events


NH Supreme Court Chief Justice John T. Broderick, Jr. recently participated in a National Summit on the critical role of fair and impartial state courts which met May 7-9 in Charlotte, North Carolina.


NHBA President Ellen Arnold and Donald D. Goodnow, director of the Administrative Office of the Courts, also attended the summit, representing NH.


The event, developed by ABA President H. Thomas Wells Jr., featured Sandra Day O’Connor, retired justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, and Mary Campbell McQueen, president and chief executive officer of the National Center for State Courts. Titled "Justice Is the Business of Government," the summit was designed to build strategies to dismantle natural tensions between branches of state government that imperil their ability to deliver on public expectations of justice. The Chief Justice attended as the liaison for the Conference of Chief Justices to the Self-Represented Litigation Network.


Broderick spoke in Portland, Oregon on Mar. 10 at the National Association for Court Management on "The Changing Face of Justice in a New Century: The Challenges It Poses to State Courts and Court Management." The text of this speech may be found at


On June 24, at the invitation of the Dean of the University of Hawaii Law School, Broderick will address the statewide Access to Justice Conference in Honolulu.

If you are in doubt about the status of any meeting, please call the Bar Center at 603-224-6942 before you head out.
