Law Related Education: A Record Year for Law Related Education Volunteerism

LRE also received several thank-you notes from the third and fourth graders at Concord Christian Academy, which was visited by NHBA Pro Bono Low-income Tax Program Coordinator Joceline Champagne.
Law Related Education Coordinator Robin E. Knippers reports that a record number of attorneys and judges signed up to visit classrooms for Law Day, May 7 – more actually than the number of schools requesting visits.

However, although not all these volunteers visited schools on Law Day, they will have opportunities to visit schools in the future. View the list of volunteers.

Gregory Martin, an attorney and marital master from Keene, wrote the following note to LRE about his experiences on Law Day.

I visited the seventh graders at Marlboro Elementary School this morning in Marlborough New Hampshire. I had a great time with an enthusiastic bunch of kids.

I spoke briefly about my law practice, spoke a little bit about the law and how it affects their lives, and then did the "No Vehicles in the Park" exercise with them. After some discussion about the law and the reasons for it (looking up the definition of "vehicle" in the dictionary), I had them divide into groups. There were four groups of five students each.

I had made signs to place around their necks for attorneys, bailiff, and clerk and I had borrowed an extra judge’s black robe from the Cheshire County Superior Court for the judge of each group when it was their turn. I then went around and discussed one of the case studies with each group.

Thanks for the opportunity.

Greg Martin

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