Pierce Law Graduates Honor DOVE


From left to right, Pamela Dodge, DOVE Coordinator, attorney and Pro Bono Board member Katherine Stearns, and 2010 Pierce Law graduates Kristen Blanchette, JD from Berlin, NH; Philip Apruzzese, JD from Yorktown Heights, NY; Gordon Daniell, Jr, LLM-IP from Hamden, CT.
In an unprecedented gesture, the 2010 graduating class at Franklin Pierce Law Center gave its class gift to a nonprofit not connected with the law school.

The class, including Webster Scholar participants, voted to make the gift to the DOVE Project of the Barís Pro Bono Referral Program. As part of their curriculum, Webster scholars are trained as volunteers for the DOVE Project, so a number of students were familiar with the program, which recruits and trains attorneys to serve on local referral panels to represent domestic violence victims at restraining order hearings.

Pro Bono Board member Katherine Stearns and Pamela Dodge, DOVE coordinator, attended the 2010 Pierce Law Commencement on May 15 and accepted the class gift of $1,500. Dean Hutson gave a nice endorsement of the DOVE Project when introducing the students who awarded the gift.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
