Can You Spare 2 Hours in 2018?

Volunteers are needed to host Lawline in 2018. If you want to assist in improving access to justice in New Hampshire and are able to set aside two hours to host a Lawline session next year (sessions take place from 6-8 p.m. on the second Wednesday of every month), please consider volunteering.

Lawline is a public service coordinated by the NH Bar Association through which members of the public can speak for free with an attorney to get answers to general legal questions. Each call lasts about 10 minutes, and volunteers can answer calls from a central location or remotely.

For more information, please contact Jacqueline Geddes.

Crandlemire Scholarship Apps – 7/28

Don Crandlemire
Don Crandlemire

The Daniel Webster Batchelder American Inn of Court is still accepting applications for the Don Crandlemire Inn of Court Scholarship. Award recipients will receive a one year free membership to the Inn of Court.

Crandlemire, who passed away unexpectedly last year, was a beloved member of the NH Bar and Daniel Webster Batchelder American Inn of Court. He made a lasting impact not only due to his expertise, but also because he was a devoted parent, husband, friend, and mentor – generous with his time, loyal, and always available to listen.

Scholarship candidates must be admitted to the NH Bar, have graduated from UNH Law, have less than five years of experience and be motivated to participate in the Daniel Webster Batchelder American Inn of Court. Special consideration will be given to those applicants who work at smaller firms and are cross-trained professionals. Current members may also apply.

Statements of interest should be submitted by Friday, July 28, to Jack Crisp or Molly Lynch.
