Denys Barrow, Judge, C.C.J.

“It has been a very enriching thing, very humbling and very satisfying. I am doing what I love to do. The work is interesting, the persons with whom I work both my fellow judges as well as the staff of the C.C.J. make it really pleasant and as source of contentment.”

“What has change from your days as your role as senior counsel to you role of a judge?”

 

Denys Barrow

“The greater responsibility. When you were counsel you argued the side of your client vigorously fully not perhaps excessively but that was your obligation because it was the adversarial system where the lawyer one the other side had the responsibility of arguing his client’s against you. As a judge you have the responsibility of seeing things in balance, of dealing fairly equally with all litigants and conveying to the society is what you are delivering is fair and equal justice to everybody.”
