The lawyers and staff at Lenehan Musgrave LLP wish to congratulate our newest Associate, Sydney Logan, on her call to the Nova Scotia Bar on Friday, October 19, 2018. Sydney was called to the New Brunswick Bar on June 11, 2018, and has been working as a “transfer lawyer” with Lenehan Musgrave since June 18, 2018, while waiting for her call to the Nova Scotia Bar.
Before becoming a practicing member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society, candidates must have a law degree, successfully complete a period of articles under the supervision of a senior lawyer, and pass bar examinations. Once those criteria are met, a member of the Nova Scotia Barristers’ Society will make a Court Application before a Justice of the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, moving that the candidate become a full fledged member of the Bar. Before the Judge will sign the Order, the candidate is asked to take an oath to represent clients ethically and honourably, and uphold the Rule of Law. Here is the oath that Sydney made before the Honourable Justice Kevin Coady on October 19, 2018:
“I, Sydney Logan, swear that as a lawyer, I shall, to the best of my knowledge and ability, conduct all matters and proceedings faithfully, honestly and with integrity. I shall support the Rule of Law and uphold and seek to improve the administration of justice. I shall abide by the ethical standards and rules governing the practice of law in Nova Scotia.”
