New Hampshire Supreme Court Attorney Discipline System Seeking Volunteer Members of the Hearings Committee
Application deadline is May 1, 2022
The New Hampshire Supreme Court seeks applications from attorneys and non-attorneys interested in serving on the Attorney Discipline System’s Hearings Committee for three-year terms. The Court encourages volunteers who have not previously served on the Committees of the Supreme Court to apply.
The Hearings Committee, established by New Hampshire Supreme Court Rule (“Rule”) 37, consists of members who are both lawyers and members of the public, who are appointed to hearing panels to consider individual cases. The hearing panel, after hearing evidence presented by Disciplinary Counsel and the Respondent attorney, makes findings of fact and conclusions of law in a written report. If the panel finds that the Respondent attorney violated one or more Rules of Professional Conduct, the panel will recommend to the Professional Conduct Committee that a disciplinary sanction be issued. The number of times that members are asked to serve on a hearing panel in any given calendar year depends on the number of cases in which hearings are required.
This is a volunteer position. A complete description of the Attorney Discipline System, the role of the Hearings Committee, as well as the Application to serve on the Committee, can be found on the Attorney Discipline System website: www.nhattyreg.org. Appointments to the Committees are made by the Supreme Court.
Individuals interested in being considered for appointment to the Committee should complete the Application and submit it to the Attorney Discipline Office by May 1, 2022. Applications can be mailed to the Attorney Discipline Office at the following address: NH Supreme Court Attorney Discipline Office, Attn: Kathy Cleveland, 4 Chenell Drive, Suite 102, Concord, NH 03301; or emailed to the Attorney Discipline Office at the following email address: email@example.com. Please contact Brian R. Moushegian, General Counsel, at (603) 224-5828 if you have any questions. Thank you.
