Court Calendars for 2014

Speech by The Chief Justice On The Occasion of The Official Opening of The 2014 Legal Year

In keeping with our tradition, we gather here today to mark the beginning of the 2014 legal year. To us in the justice delivery system, the day on which we mark the official opening of the legal year remains the most significant date in our calendar. It is significant because it gives us an appropriate occasion during which we address the nation directly on matters concerning justice delivery. It is an occasion during which we have to introspect and review the performance of the sector in general and of the courts in particular, during the preceding year.
