     The Supreme Court launched its "On the Road" program for high school students in May 2002 at St. Anselm College in Manchester. Since then, sessions have been held at Dartmouth College, Dover High School, Plymouth State University and Keene State College, Nashua High School North, Phillips Exeter Academy, Berlin Junior High School, Bow High School, and Souhegan High School.

     These unique events provide students and community members an unusual opportunity to see the state’s highest court up close and learn about its work through a dialogue with the lawyers and the justices. The “On the Road” program is the only occasion when the court convenes outside the Supreme Court building in Concord. 

     Prior to each session, volunteer lawyers from the participating communities visit each of the invited schools to discuss with students in advance the legal issues and proceedings involved in the cases that will be heard by the court.

     Doing a research paper on how the court system works?  Check out the New Hampshire Bar Association's Guide to NH Courts.  Go to http://www.nhbar.org, click on the "For the Public" link, and choose "A Guide to NH Courts" located under "Legal Information".   Their information includes a description of the different divisions of court, legal terms, and descriptions of the criminal and civil court processes.
