Mrs. Justice Norma Wade-Miller recently retired as a judge of the Supreme Court of Bermuda.
A special sitting of the Court was held in her honour, on 20 May 2016.
Mrs. Justice Norma Wade-Miller’s career is noteworthy for a number of reasons, including the fact that she was the first woman to be appointed as a substantive Magistrate in Bermuda. She was then the first woman to be appointed as a Supreme Court Judge, and to sit as Bermuda’s Acting Chief Justice.

It might also be worth remembering that, in 2003, there was some controversy over the fact that she was not appointed as Bermuda’s Chief Justice on a full-time basis, when the former Chief Justice Richard Ground was appointed instead. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/centralamericaandthecaribbean/bermuda/1449945/Bermuda-in-row-over-new-judge.html
