CHARLESTOWN, NEVIS (October 22nd 2013) — An impressive ceremony, held yesterday [Tuesday 22nd October 2013] signaled the official start of Ms. Karene D. Paul’s legal career.
Paul, the daughter of Cotton Ground resident, Jacinth Paul was “called to the bar” at the High Court in Charlestown in the presence of members of the St. Kitts-Nevis Bar Association, her family members, close friends and other well-wishers.
Ms. Paul’s application for admission to the bar was proposed by Senior Counsel Myrna Walwyn and supported by Senior Counsel Glenford Hamilton. Brief remarks were also made by Mr. Arud Gossai of the St. Kitts-Nevis Bar Association.
Justice Albert Redhead officially inducted Ms. Paul into the legal fraternity and offered words of advice to her.
