In celebration of the association's 40th Anniversary, we are pleased to present a new Peer-to-Peer Paralegal of the Year Award. Nominations are now open!
For years, PANH has been recognizing the state’s most influential and accomplished paralegals, with attorneys and colleagues nominating individuals for the PANH Paralegal of the Year Award, and hosting the presentation of the NH Bar's Paralegal Professionalism Award.
This year, we have revised the Paralegal of the Year Award, and now nominations will be made by PANH members, to recognize PANH members.
These individuals are the best representation of us, and are our future- they help shape the paralegal profession, value paralegal legal education and community, and foster strong ties to the NH Bar, pro bono, and greater NH legal community.
We encourage you to reflect on the association's members, history, and future, and submit your nomination for this important recognition. The deadline for nominations is September 8, 2023. The recipient will be recognized with a commemorative plaque at the Annual Meeting on September 15, 2023, along with a gift certificate for their 2024 membership dues.
