On Thursday, July 20th, the Honourable Society of Gray's Inn officially called San Pedro resident Eduardo Aguilar to the Bar for both England and Wales in the United Kingdom (UK). The practice of law in the UK is divided between solicitors and barristers, and Gray's Inn is one of the four Inns of Court that includes barristers and judges in London, UK.

To my knowledge, I am the first from Ambergris Caye to be called to the Bar and practice as a barrister in England and Wales. What is even more exciting was that I was called to the Bar by Baroness Hale of Richmond. She is the first woman appointed as UK's most senior judge, and she was recently appointed as the president of the Supreme Court. In her address, Baroness Hale explained the diversity that exists in England by mentioning that an individual from Belize was being called to the Bar. I thank everyone who has supported me," said Aguilar.
