FINAL REMINDER: Invitation – Special Call to Bar – Friday, 14 October 2016

As you are aware, 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. Remarkably, five students-at-law from our province suspended their studies to partake in the war effort but were either killed or gave up their prospective legal careers as a result: namely Cecil Bayly Clift; John Clift; William F.C. Hutchings; Janet M. Miller and Harris Rendell Oke.

Members of the Bar are invited to attend the Call to Bar Ceremony on Friday, 14 October 2016 at 10:00 am, which will be held in Court Room No. 1 at the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, 309 Duckworth Street, St. John’s. At this Special Call, in addition to the regular Call to the Bar Convocation, the Court and the Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador will recognize the extraordinary contributions of these five students-at-law, by ceremonially calling them to the Bar and by conferring on them the Honorary Degrees of Barrister-at-Law.

Following the Call to Bar Ceremony the Law Society is hosting a reception at The Fifth Ticket, 171 Water Street, St. John’s.

Please R.S.V.P. on or before the morning of Tuesday, 11 October 2016 by contacting Erin Rowe by telephone at 758-0814 or by email at
