As you are aware, 2014 marked the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. Remarkably, law students 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.

The Law Courts & the Society will recognize the extraordinary contributions of these law students by ceremonially calling them to the Bar Friday, November 8, at 3:00 p.m. You're invited to attend this special Call to Bar Ceremony

When: Friday, November 8, at 3:00 p.m

Where: Courtroom 301 at The Law Courts, 1815 Upper Water Street, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Following the Call to Bar Ceremony the Society will host a reception outside the courtroom.

RSVP by contacting Anne Broughm by October 28, 2019, at abroughm@nsbs.org.

We look forward to seeing you.
