[www.inewsguyana.com] – Marissa Nadina Nadir was today admitted to the Bar before Chief Justice (ag) Ian Chang. Nadir was ecstatic and in giving her petition to the Chief Justice spoke about her strong support system which has assisted her tremendously to get to this point.
Miss Nadir said she intends to do her best and help those in need.
She will begin her new job on Monday, November 10 and will be working from the Chambers of Attorney-at-Law Bibi Shaddick.
“It’s a bit unreal right now, I don’t think it has sunk in but on Monday…but right now I am very happy and I have a tremendous support mechanism from my family and my former employers, I couldn’t have asked for a better support system,” she told iNews.
In his advice to the new Attorney-at-Law, Justice Chang urged her to be a student of the law, emphasizing that application of the law is key. He also cautioned her to be a humble student of the law, adding that the important aspect is not monetary reward but one’s contribution to the legal fraternity.
Her father, People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Parliamentarian, Manzoor Nadir was on hand with his wife and other family members to witness his youngest daughter’s admittance to the bar.
“She is an example to young people who know what they want and sometimes parents have to be tolerant…many times we have to leave her children to make their decisions for themselves and as a parent what my daughters and sons have achieved I feel every single child in our country could do it.”
He added that it is the responsibility of parents to help nurture their children and not just by providing their basic needs, but through involvement in their daily lives.
