PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — The new president of the Trinidad and Tobago-based Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) Justice Adrian Saunders, will be honoured today in the first of two special sittings for the regional court.

Today's sitting will be held at the headquarters here, while the second sitting will take place in Saunders' home country of St Vincent and the Grenadines on July 20.

The new president was installed at a ceremony in Montego Bay, Jamaica last week.

The special sitting will be attended by members of the legal community and other organisations across the region.

This evening the Caribbean Association of Judicial Officers will host a fund-raising dinner party to honour the new CCJ president, who is also chairman of the organisation.

Justice Saunders, a native of St Vincent and the Grenadines, graduated from The University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, with a bachelor of laws degree in 1975 and a Legal Education Certificate from the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad & Tobago in 1977.

In 2005, Justice Saunders was among the first cohort of judges to join the CCJ bench before being elevated to president.
