Bankside Chambers farewell Hon Sir Ian Barker QC

A dinner was held in honour of Sir Ian Barker QC on the occasion of his retirement from Bankside Chambers as a full member in the Winter Garden at the Northern Club earlier this week.

Sir Ian will stay on at Bankside as an Associate Member. The members of Bankside will miss having such a knowledgeable and kind Kaumatua (Maori dictionary defines that title as “a respected tribal elder who has been involved with their Whanau for a number of years.  They are appointed by their people who believe the chosen elder has the capacity to teach and guide both current and future generations”).
