Chief Jus­tice An­thony Gates yes­ter­day told the five le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers ad­mit­ted to the High Court in Suva to set their stan­dards and keep them. “You must set your stan­dards and keep it,” Chief Jus­tice Gates said. “I hope that you will demon­strate to the com­mu­nity that you are a lawyer who is very con­cerned to do the right thing.” Chief Jus­tice An­thony Gates led pro­ceed­ings as he ad­mit­ted the new le­gal prac­ti­tion­ers to the bar at the High Court in Suva. Those ad­mit­ted to the bar were Man­isha Manika Nadan, Tracey Ching Ling Wong, Peter Fran­cis Seares, San­jana Devi Chand and Nikheel Nar­ren Nam­biar.

Chief Jus­tice Gates also re­minded the newly ad­mit­ted lawyers that no one was above the law.

Chief Jus­tice Gates also urged them to as­sist the less for­tu­nate in their com­mu­ni­ties when­ever they could. “One of the valu­able things in life is that when you are in a job where you can do some­thing to help peo­ple be­cause by help­ing peo­ple, you get the most re­ward,” he said. The event was at­tended by Act­ing Prime Min­is­ter and At­tor­ney-Gen­eral Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Solic­i­torGen­eral Shar­vada Sharma, se­nior lawyers and fam­ily and friends.
