THE ADVOCATE V O L . 7 5 P A R T 2 M A R C H 2 0 1 7 307 BENCH AND BAR Nothing is so beautiful as spring”, wrote Gerald Manley Hopkins in the aptly named “Spring”, “When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush; … thrush / Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring / The ear, it strikes like “ lightnings to hear him sing; / The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush / The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush / With richness …” Among those headed into this glorious season with a new “spring in their step” are the members of bench and bar who have made the recent moves and achieved the various milestones listed below.
