The 2012 Legal Year opened with an ecumenical service held at St David's Cathedral in early February.

Archbishop Doyle gave the keynote address to a large audience of senior justices, magistrates, law graduates and dignitaries including Chief Justice Ewan Crawford, Tasmania Police Commissioner Darren Hine, Solicitor General Leigh Sealy and the Governor of Tasmania, His Excellency Peter Underwood AC and Mrs Underwood.


Ministers from Protestant and Catholic denominations as well as a senior member of the Hobart Hebrew congregation added to the ecumenical blend of the service by reading out specific passages of the Gospel which related to working in the legal field.
