Two new lawyers called to the bar in Nelson

The ceremony took place in Nelson before family members and friends as well as other practicing lawyers.

Law students Allison Edgar and Matthew Yates were officially recognized as lawyers (“called to the bar”) in the Nelson courthouse at the end of December.

The ceremony took place before family members and friends as well as other practicing lawyers.

For Yates it was his second such ceremony. He had already been called to the bar in Australia, but it took two years to get his Canadian accreditation.
