The opening of the 2020/2021 Law Term, which was expected to take place next Thursday via a simple address, has now been postponed by Chief Justice Ivor Archie.
A media release from the Judiciary on Wednesday said the postponement of the address was occasioned by advice received from the Judiciary’s Medical Team, that the Chief Justice should have entered a period of self-quarantine due to having been exposed to a COVID-19 positive individual.
The release said the Chief Justice was tested and “fortunately was not impacted by the virus.”
It also said his quarantine period was over.
The Judiciary said the CJ’s address in commemoration of the Opening of the Law Term, will now take place on October 7, 2020 at 2.05 p.m.
The address will be virtual and carried on Trinidad and Tobago Television (TTT) and Judiciary social media platforms.
