RULES OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

ADMINISTRATIVE RULES 35 TO 59

Rule 46. Law Clerk Code Of Conduct.

Canon 7. Compliance

A person to whom this Code becomes applicable should arrange his affairs as soon as reasonably possible to comply with it or receive a waiver from the Supreme Court. This Code shall apply to all full- or part-time law clerks or interns in all courts. Violations shall be brought before the Committee on Judicial Conduct which shall have jurisdiction over any complaints arising under this Code. A law clerk should initially refer any ethical questions under this Code to the justice to whom he is regularly assigned. In the event that in a rare instance he feels dissatisfied with the decision of the justice he may solicit the opinion of all of the justices on the court which he is serving. Such recourse to the justices shall be used with circumspection and without the divulging of such procedure to any persons except to the justices on the court which the law clerk duly is serving. The words "he", "him" or "his" shall equally apply to the feminine gender. Nothing in this Code shall limit any court from having any further and additional requirements for employment as a law clerk so long as they are not less restrictive than this Code. All courts or justices employing a full- or part-time law clerk or intern must file the name and address of such persons with the Clerk of the Supreme Court within two weeks of any such employment.
