Opening of the Legal Year
The legal profession recognises the Opening of the Legal Year in February each year with events osted by the Law Society and the Chief Justice of the Northern Territory, that include a keynote speaker and provides an opportunity to reflect on their role of administering the justice system.
Traditionally, Opening of the Legal Year ceremonies were steeped in tradition. The legal profession and local dignitaries participated in a procession into the Supreme Court of the Northern Territory for an ecumenical service, which Ministers of different denominations are invited to conduct each year.
