To facilitate participation by as many lawyers and judges as possible in the New Hampshire Bar Association’s "A Lawyer and Judge In Every School" program in celebration of Law Day, the Supreme Court of New Hampshire, pursuant to RSA 490:4, directs that participation by a lawyer or a judge in the program on Friday, May 7, 2010, generally should serve as sufficient grounds to continue any conflicting hearings scheduled on that date. A judge or master may decide, in his or her discretion, not to continue proceedings in a particular case if the judge or master believes that interests such as the efficient administration of the court or ensuring justice in the case compel that a proceeding remain scheduled for that day.
