Kings Chambers’ Marcus Daly SC is called to the Bar of Northern Ireland
On 11 April 2014 in Belfast, the benchers of the Inn of Court for Northern Ireland conferred on Marcus Daly SC the degree of barrister at law for admission to practice in Northern Ireland.
This was followed by a ceremony in the Nisi Prius Court where the Lord Chief Justice Declan Morgan formally called Daly to the Bar of Northern Ireland.
During the call ceremony, the Lord Chief Justice openly recorded from the bench his support for the important work being undertaken by the British Irish Commercial Bar Association and in particular the valuable connections now being established between commercial practitioners north and south of the Irish border and extending across to the north of England.
