More women admitted than men to N.H. Bar.

Women outnumbered men 54 to 41 in the latest group of new admittees to the New Hampshire Bar.

The Oct. 30 ceremony was only the second time that women, who comprise about 30 percent of active membership, outnumbered men at a swearing-in of new lawyers.

At a special session of the New Hampshire Supreme Court, the newest members of the bench welcomed new admittees to the bar. Associate Justice Linda S. Dalianis, appointed in April, referred to herself as a fellow beginner, and urged new lawyers to "use the oath you have just taken as a touchstone for all of your actions."

Later, Associate Justice Joseph P Nadeau, appointed in March, discussed the public responsibilities that lawyers assume as "officers of the court." He quoted from a decision authored by Chief Justice Charles Doe that enabled Marilla Ricker to become the first woman allowed to practice law in New Hampshire in 1890.

Doe wrote, "Attorneys constitute a profession essential to society. The confidence which they receive and the responsibilities which they are obliged to assume demand not only the ability of a high order, but the strictest integrity."

Nadeau also encouraged all New Hampshire attorneys to make pro bono service "an integral and important part of your professional life."
