Member Profile

New Hampshire Bar Association

The New Hampshire Bar Association (NHBA) is a non-profit, court-mandated organization. As a unified bar, all attorneys licensed to practice in the state and NH judges must belong to the NHBA and pay annual dues. As of October 2017, 5,399 members were in one of the “active” membership status categories (i.e. currently authorized to practice in the state). Of these, 3,474 maintained a principal office in-state, with another 1,925 of these “active” category members out-of-state. An additional 2,527 members are on “inactive” status (i.e. not currently authorized to practice in NH).

As a unified Bar, the Association maintains member licensing records and plays a key role in facilitating communications and cooperation between the practicing members of the bar and the judicial branch. The Bar Association’s activities also are aimed at maintaining high standards of competence and integrity in the practice of law through Continuing Legal Education Programs and much more.

The NH Bar Association offers many services, including a Lawyer Referral Service, Modest Means Legal Program, Low Income Tax Payer Project, and Law-Related Education Programs.

The Association’s Pro Bono Referral Program provides critical legal services for those who cannot afford legal representation often at the most desperate times, and provides meaningful volunteer opportunities for lawyers.
