(CMR) His Excellency the Governor, Anwar Choudhury, is pleased to announce the appointments of Sir Michael Birt and Sir Jack Beatson to the Cayman Islands Court of Appeal.
Throughout February and March 2018, the Judicial and Legal Services Commission (the “JLSC”) carried out an open recruitment process advertising the two posts locally and overseas.
Following a short-listing process, an interview panel interviewed five persons for these posts; ultimately recommending Sir Michael Birt and Sir Jack Beatson as the successful candidates. His Excellency accepted the recommendations to appoint the Justices to the Court of Appeal.
“It is my distinct privilege to appoint Sir Michael and Sir Jack as Justices in the Cayman Islands”
the Governor said.
“The expertise and calibre of the Court of Appeal, and indeed our judiciary, continues to flourish with the appointment of highly qualified individuals such as these. I am grateful to the JLSC for their continued recruitment efforts and I look forward to welcoming Sir Michael and Sir Jack to the Cayman Islands in due course”
