    The personal history has become of great importance. I thought academic scholarship if the persons interest is the Bench was of greater importance.
    There is no age, year she graduated undergraduate or attendance at Law School. Career record as a Practitioner and areas of Practice.
    Perhaps things are done differently in Windward Islands.
