Bar Foundation News: 2010 Kirby and Kenison Award Nominations Sought

The NH Bar Foundation is seeking nominations from NH Bar members for the 2010 Robert E. Kirby and Frank Rowe Kenison awards to be presented at the Bar Foundationís Annual Dinner on May 4, 2010. February 1, 2010 is the deadline for nominations.

The Kirby Award recognizes lawyers, age 35 or younger, whose traits of civility, courtesy, perspective, and excellent advocacy are distinguishing characteristics of their professional practice. The Robert E. Kirby Award was established in 1996 to honor the memory of Bob Kirby, a young lawyer "of great skill, civility, and good humor" who died that year at the age of 35.

The Frank Rowe Kenison Award is presented to an individual (or individuals) whose contributions to the administration of justice, the legal profession, or the advancement of legal thought have served to better the lives of New Hampshire citizens. Frank Rowe Kenison (1907-1980) served as chief justice of the NH Supreme Court from 1952-1977. He was an exquisite legal thinker who committed his life to the legal system, education about the law and the promise of equal justice for all.

A list of former award recipients is published on the NH Bar Foundationís website under Bar Foundation Awards. To obtain nomination forms, please contact

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