NH’s Suffolk Law Alumni Have Something to Celebrate


Pictured with Jennifer Parent, Suffolk Law NH Alumni President Jennifer Parent, are the recipients of the Suffolk law repayment program for 2011(left to right): David Tencza, Hillsborough County Attorney’s Office; Anthony Sculimbrene, NH Public Defender; and John McCormack, Cheshire County Attorney’s Office. (not pictured is Anthony J. Naro, NH Public Defender).
Alumni attending the Suffolk University Law School dinner in February celebrated the ninth year of the NH Alumni of Suffolk University Law School Loan Assistance Program.

The Loan Assistance program, coordinated by the NH Bar Foundation, assists Suffolk Law graduates who practice in New Hampshire in public interest or government law. The program assists those who have worked at NH Public Defender, NH Legal Assistance, the Disabilities Rights Center, and the county attorneys’ offices.

"I am thrilled with the nine years of generous support the alumni of Suffolk Law School have given to this program. With the assistance of the Bar Foundation, our goal is to continue to provide this help to those dedicated to public practice," said Jennifer L. Parent, a Suffolk law alum who helped launch the program with other interested alumni at the instigation of John R. Maher, who spoke at the Suffolk Law alumni dinner in 2002 and was astonished at the law school debt burdens of newer lawyers.

"I am gratified at the financial response we receive every year. Hopefully, this program will encourage more lawyers to participate in public interest law and government law," said Judge Maher. "I am also grateful to the NH Bar Foundation for its assistance in making the Loan Assistance Program a success."

According to the Bar Foundation, just over $12,000 has been given out since the program’s inception, assisting 17 different recipients.
