Keep up to date with developments leading up to the conference and live updates during the event.
Why not take advantage of your trip to Guyana for the CMJA Conference to explore the Land of Many Waters even more. The Local Organising Committee has been in touch with two Tour operators in Guyana who are happy to organise one/two or three day trips for Delegates and Accompanying Persons.
Take a once in a liftetime trip to the breathtaking Kaieteur Falls with a drop of 741ft which is one of the highest in the world. It’s located in the heart of the rainforest on one of the world’s largest sandstone plateaus or enjoy a swim beneath the Orinduik Falls in the Jasper Hills on the Guyana /Brazil border. Alternatively, visit the pristine Iwokrama Rainforest, a vast wilderness of one million acres which was one of the first Commonwealth conservation projects set up in 1996 as the Iwokrama International Centre for Rainforest Conservation and Development and learn about the flora and fauna of Guyana.
Explore the many islands in the Essequibo and Mazaruni Rivers, a short hop from Georgetown. Or just explore Georgetown’s beautiful architecture and sample the culinary delights or world class rum it has to offer. There is something for everyone.

THE HONOURABLE JUSTICE CARL ASHOK SINGH, OR, CCH
CHANCELLOR OF THE JUDICIARY (ag) of GUYANA
The Commonwealth Magistrates’ and Judges’ Association will be hosting its 2016 Conference in September in Georgetown, Guyana, South America. Guyana has been described as “a paradise for nature lovers, adventure seekers and the eco-tourist. It boast an irresistible combination of fascinating and breathtaking natural beauty, pristine Amazonian rainforests, immense waterfalls, amazing wildlife blended with vibrant indigenous culture, rich heritage and the most hospitable and friendly people in the world.
It will be my great pleasure to welcome you to Guyana and to this conference.
The Conference theme will be “The Judiciary as guarantors of the Rule of Law.” The role of our respective Judiciaries affecting varied fields of human pursuits will come under focus from the expected speeches and presentations. A stimulating agenda has been put together
It is my hope that this conference will be a highly successful one. Additionally, it is my intention that your visit and experiences in Guyana should be memorable ones, and the planned social engagements would undoubtedly ensure this. I look forward to seeing you in September.
