BCM Lawyers Brush Up on Their Practical Skills
Feb. 18, 2023
BCM attorney Timothy Kopczynski recently participated in the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Practical Skills Course, which is a two-day Continuing Legal Education (“CLE”) course for attorneys newly admitted in New Hampshire. The course covers many of the nuances of practicing law in New Hampshire across a variety of practice areas. Timmy attended sessions covering topics such as New Hampshire court practice, ethics, real estate transactions, and small firm management. CLE is mandatory in New Hampshire and allows attorneys to polish their expertise and keep apprised of trends and changes in the law.
Just as important as attending CLE courses is presenting them. BCM co-owner Jason Reimers was also involved in the Practical Skills Course, serving as one of the presenters for the “Practical Ethics” workshop that was held on the first day of the program. Jason had the opportunity to discuss and answer questions about various ethical considerations with attendees, highlighting the New Hampshire Rules of Professional Conduct. Jason was formerly a long-time member of the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Ethics Committee.
BCM understands the importance of staying current in one’s field and takes an active role in supporting CLE in New Hampshire. Read about BCM co-owner Amy Manzelli’s role on the New Hampshire Bar Association CLE Committee for the 2021-2022 bar year here.
