Supreme Court Thanks ‘On the Road’ Volunteers
To New Hampshire Bar News:
Superior Court Judge John Kissinger (l), the presiding justice in Cheshire County, moderated the Supreme Court’s 14th "On the Road" session at Monadnock Regional High School.
All of us at the Supreme Court want to thank the members of the New Hampshire Bar Association who generously volunteered their time to help prepare high school students for the "On the Road" special session of the Supreme Court held at Monadnock Regional High School on Oct. 17.
The success of this event, which was attended by almost 500 students, has always depended upon the willingness of lawyers to visit each of the participating schools in advance, to talk with students about the cases to be heard and about the work of the court. Our staff tells us that it was very clear during the Q&A session with lawyers after oral arguments that these students were well prepared. We are very grateful to the lawyers who so generously took the time out of their busy schedules to conduct the advance review sessions, which greatly enhance the educational benefit of our program.
The lawyers who participated in this year project were: Attorney General Michael Delaney; Cheshire County Attorney Peter Heed; and attorneys Adam Kossayda, Kelly Dowd, Caroline Smith, Kim Kossick, Keith Clouatre and Steven Venezia. Each deserves credit for helping to make "On the Road" one of our most enduring and successful efforts to enhance public understanding of the New Hampshire court system.
