“With his insistence, the civil procedure and the Court of Appeal rules came into existence. For those of us who know Justice Wolfe by name and nature, he had the disposition to get this done, implemented, and we are now seeing the benefits of it,” he said.

He noted that the development of the Court of Appeal procedural framework was an important first step towards modernising the courts.

In his tribute to Justice McCalla, Chief Justice Sykes noted her contribution to enhancing justice training.

“She was insistent that judges be trained to produce high-quality judges to deliver high-quality justice. Her crowning achievement is the launch of the Judicial Training Institute (JTI) last year,” he said.
