At a time the country is faced with power shortages there is apparently a surfeit of power in this photograph. It is an unusual incident where the private bar, official bar, the judiciary and the legislature share the same platform.

The National Law Week 2017 was held on March 3 under the auspices of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the Chief Guest. Seen in picture are Wickremesinghe, Justice Minister Wijeyadasa Rajapakshe, the newly appointed Chief Justice Priyasath Dep, President of the Bar Association Geoffrey Alagaratnam and Attorney General Jayantha Jayasuriya.
