Chief Justice Broderick Thanks Lawyers
Once again this year, members of the New Hampshire Bar generously volunteered to help prepare the more than 500 high school students who attended the 11th On the Road special session of the Supreme Court, held on October 21 at Memorial High School in Manchester. Each lawyer visited one of the 13 participating schools to talk with students about the facts and law of the cases to be heard, as well as the work of the court.
That advance preparation is vital to the educational value of our project and all of us here at the Supreme Court want to extent our gratitude to the lawyers who participated this year and to the classroom teachers who worked with them. Our trip to Memorial was a huge success, in large part because, as was clear to everyone involved, these students were ready and eager to talk about the legal issues involved and how the justice system works.
The following lawyers participated in our project this year: Attorney General Michael A. Delaney: Mark D. Attorri; Jaye Rancourt; Gregory V. Sullivan; David W. Ruoff; Mary Ann Dempsey; Mary Elizabeth Tenn; Jonathan M. Shirley; Kevin G. Collimore; Lawrence A. Vogelman; John P. Newman; David A. Vicinanzo; Theodore M. Lothstein; and Terry L. Ollila.
We also want to thank New Hampshire Bar President James L. Tenn, Jr., Manchester Bar President Jeremy T. Walker (a graduate of Memorial High School), and attorneys Dawnangela A. Minton and Daniel J. Bourque who helped us at the event.
