High Court hosts hybrid opening of legal year on Tuesday

Posted: Monday, January 15, 2024. 9:59 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: For the fourth consecutive year dating back to 2021, the official opening of the Legal Year will take place virtually on Tuesday, January 16.

Part of the reason is that the old Treasury Building, which hosts the event, is still being refurbished following the ravages of Hurricane Lisa in November 2022.

The church service that usually opens the event was attended in person but recorded at Wesley Methodist Church on Albert Street. The inspection of the guard of honor and official addresses from the Chief Justice, Attorney General and President of the Bar Association have been pre-recorded.

The last opening done entirely in person was in January of 2020, before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. The openings for 2021, 2022 and 2023 were all done virtually due to COVID protocols in the former two cases and because of venue issues in 2023.
