The Robert E. Kirby Award is given annually to a practitioner age 35 or younger who demonstrates excellent advocacy and civility.
The Frank Rowe Kenison Award is presented annually to a person or group making a substantial contribution to the betterment of New Hampshire citizens through the administration of justice, the legal profession or the advancement of legal thought.
Both awards will be presented at the NH Bar Foundation Annual Event on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the Manchester Country Club.
A capacity crowd on June 1, 2017, celebrated the first 100 years of women in the legal profession in New Hampshire. Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis keynoted the event, which featured a video of memories of women pioneers in law as well as their successors in the profession.
The event was coordinated by the NH Bar Foundation in collaboration with:
NH Women's Bar Association; New Hampshire Bar Association and its Gender Equality Committee; the Daniel Webster-Batchelder American Inn of Court, the NH Association for Justice, and the NH Supreme Court Society.
A commemorative booklet celebrating the history of pioneering women in the bench and bar also was published.
