Three admitted to Inner Bar


Share post:

Three of the island’s 17 newest Queen’s Counsel were admitted to the Inner Bar yesterday.

And Chief Justice Sir Marston Gibson has urged them to hold fast to the undertaking of being mentors, just as they were mentored as young lawyers.

Husband and wife team of Supreme Court Registrar Barbara Cooke-Alleyne and Ramon Alleyne, who created history as the first married couple to become Queen’s Counsel, along with Acting High Court judge Alrick Scott, were admitted in a short ceremony where, in moving away from tradition, Deputy Registrar Joy-Ann Clarke read their letters of instruments in Supreme Court No. 5.

Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite spoke on behalf of the Alleynes, while Sir Richard Cheltenham stood for Scott.

Cooke-Alleyne and Scott will be otherwise engaged tomorrow, when the ceremony for the other 14 attorneys will be held.

The three lawyers expressed their appreciation to those who had supported them throughout their journey. (RA)
