The NHWBA was established in 1998 to promote and support the advancement and interests of women in the legal community through leadership, professional interaction, education and the exchange of ideas between our members and the community. We offer our members opportunities for personal and professional growth through networking and professional development forums, continuing legal education seminars, and public service initiatives that focus on improving the lives of women and children in New Hampshire. Our membership is comprised of attorneys in all areas of law, judges, educators, government officials and law students from across the state. We invite you to learn more about the NHWBA by exploring our website or joining us at an upcoming event.
NHWBA's Annual Food Drive - April 13th through May 11th
For the seventh consecutive year, the NHWBA will be collecting food and monetary donations to help feed hungry families here in New Hampshire. From April 13th to May 11th, the NHWBA will be collecting canned or boxed food items and monetary donations for the New Hampshire Food Bank. Checks should be made payable to "NH Food Bank" and sent to NHWBA at P. O. Box 915, Manchester, NH 03105.
Food donations can be dropped off at individual firms and offices, and they will be collected by NHWBA representatives from May 11th to May 13th. If you would like to collect items at your office or would like to donate items and need to know where to bring them, please contact Gretchen Pyles.
All food items and monetary donations collected during the drive will benefit the New Hampshire Food Bank to help with the increased need for food during the summer months. Specifically, the New Hampshire Food Bank and local food pantries have the added strain of families needing more food because they cannot rely on the schools for hot lunches for their children.
Donations of all sizes are welcome and encouraged. Thank you to all who donate to the NHWBA's Food Drive!

The NHWBA Received the 2014 Public Service Award from the National Conference of Women's Bar Associations
The NHWBA was selected to receive the National Conference of Women's Bar Associations' ("NCWBA") 2014 Public Service Award for its "Overcoming Cancer's Legal Challenges" program. This program was a collaboration of the NHWBA and the Elliot Regional Cancer Center. A support group at the Cancer Center called “Living Beyond Breast Cancer” meets on the second Wednesday of every month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Many patients and survivors attending these meetings have questions about how their treatment and recovery will affect them and their families from a legal perspective. The NHWBA met with the support group in March 2013 and intends to meet with them again this spring to provide the patients and survivors with information about their legal rights and to answer questions pertaining to employment issues, insurance and financial issues, and family law issues. In addition to providing legal guidance, the NHWBA also sought to provide emotional support for the cancer patients and survivors and their families. The NHWBA also met with the Cancer Center’s Social Work Oncology Group to help educate the social workers about the laws that affect their patients.
The 2014 Public Service Award was presented to the NHWBA at the NCWBA’s Leadership Summit held at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Massachusetts on August 8, 2014.
