Court News: Justices Hicks and Conboy Honored at UNH Law
Inducted into Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity for Their Integrity and Service
Surrounded by students they have mentored and encouraged, New Hampshire Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Gary Hicks and Associate Justice Carol Ann Conboy were inducted into the Phi Alpha Delta (PAD) legal fraternity as honorary members at a ceremony held at the University of New Hampshire School of Law on Oct. 20.
PAD President Jacqueline Botchman, a second-year student, welcomed the justices into the Kenison Chapter, saying that Justice Hicks and Justice Conboy “exemplify the core values of integrity and service that Phi Alpha Delta holds dear... We are honored and excited to recognize their unparalleled dedication.”
PAD was founded in 1902 as a professional networking organization that promotes integrity, compassion and courage through service to the student, the school, the profession and the community. The purpose of PAD is to bridge the gap between students and members of the Bench and Bar with the goal to advance the ideals of liberty and equal justice under law; to stimulate excellence in scholarship; to inspire the virtues of compassion and courage; and to foster integrity and professional competence.
