The telephone number will remain the same for now: 603-224-8806.  However, due to the transition, we encourage you to email the OBA if you need any information or have questions.  Email may be sent to Sherry Hieber, General Counsel, at and to Lyne Schwarzer, Legal Assistant, at

The fax line may not be in service immediately, so please either mail or scan and email any reference forms or other similar documents.

New Hampshire Supreme Court Rule 42 governs admission to the New Hampshire bar. It provides four ways for a person to become a member of the bar: (I) by examination; (II) by motion without examination; (III) by transferred Uniform Bar Examination ("UBE") score; and (IV) after completion of the Daniel Webster Scholar Honors Program. Admissions are also governed by New Hampshire Board Bar Examiner regulations.
