Honouring 50 years

The Benchers also honoured nine other lawyers reaching this milestone: Leonard C. Dudley, Robert J. Falconer, QC, William C.E. Frolic, Frederick H. Herbert, QC, John F. Leighton, E. George MacMinn, QC, David P.R. Roberts, QC, Stella F. Samuels and John M. Tennant.

Each year the Law Society presents 50 and 60-year certificates to long-serving members in tribute to their cumulative years in the profession. For those who have previously served as a judge, all years of service on the Bench are acknowledged as forming part of that service record.
