Community Celebrates Annual Opening of the Court on September 12, 2019 at Museum London

London ON - Since 1826, Middlesex County has celebrated the opening of its courts with a formal ceremony, and renewal of oaths. The ceremony brings the community together to recognize the fundamental role of our courts in a free and democratic society.

The ceremony is an opportunity for those in attendance to connect with the legal community. The event also serves as a reminder to justices, lawyers, and police of their duties to the legal system, and community as a whole.

For the 193rd Opening of the Courts, organizers have decided to revitalize the ceremony to better reflect the diversity of the legal profession, and the communities it serves.

At this year’s event, organizers have chosen to emphasize the theme of community. Accordingly, organizations and justice system stakeholders are invited to attend and be part of a welcoming and inclusive celebration.

The public is invited to attend the 193rd ceremony, which is scheduled to take place on September 12, 2019. The event begins at 4:30 p.m. with a civil procession from the London courthouse into Museum London at 421 Ridout Street North. Participants of the procession include the Police Colour Guard, members of the judiciary, police services, court staff, lawyers, and paralegals.

The ceremony commences at 5:00 p.m. inside Museum London with speeches from important stakeholders, including an indigenous representative, and members of the judiciary. There will also be a commemoration of the departed as well as a renewal of oaths/pledges for justices, lawyers and police.
