It is the first time that the new Law Term’s opening will be broadcast from this country. And the event comes at a time when a son of the soil, Honourable Justice Adrian Saunders, is acting Chief Justice of the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal, our highest court of law in the region.
Saunders replaced Honourable Sir Dennis Byron who has been called to serve on the British Privy Council.
The new Law Term opens annually in mid-September with an ecumenical service which is usually followed by a procession of members of the local Bar Association, members of the Judiciary, members of the armed and unarmed organizations, and other court officials.
The ceremony ends with an inspection parade at the Supreme Court yard.
Meanwhile, the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal is scheduled to sit here next month. Following the opening of the new Law Term, the Court of Appeal will begin sitting on September 20.
