New Hampshire Supreme Court Seeking Applicants for the New Hampshire Board of Bar Examiners
The New Hampshire Supreme Court seeks applications from qualified members of the New Hampshire bar to fill two open positions on the Board of Bar Examiners. The board oversees the bar admission process pursuant to New Hampshire Supreme Court Rule 42(I). The openings are for examiners to evaluate students enrolled in the Daniel Webster Scholar Honors Program at the University of New Hampshire School of Law.
The appointments are for three-year terms and are renewable. Applicants must be active members of the New Hampshire bar with at least five years of legal practice experience. Applicants should have a well-developed understanding of the ethical issues presented by membership in the bar and an interest in legal education and requirements for admission. Because the DWS examiners evaluate aspects of trial practice, trial experience is preferred.
Committee members attend at least one board meeting per year and serve on one of three subcommittees of the board: testing, eligibility, and testing accommodations.
Applicants may obtain an application form by downloading it from the New Hampshire Supreme Court website, or by requesting it from Sherry M. Hieber, General Counsel, NH Supreme Court Office of Bar Admissions, at (603) 224-8806 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please direct any questions to Ms. Hieber and send a completed application and resume to her at 4 Chenell Drive, Suite 102, Concord, N.H. 03301, or by email. Applications should be received no later than October 7, 2022. Thank you.
