October 2016 Interview Synopsis

Lamminga told the commission how she had fallen into law after initially being intent on becoming a doctor. While a first-year medical student a car accident, which had left Lamminga rethinking her life, proved a seminal moment in the decision to pursue a legal career, she said.

“Law is this living creature that evolves and changes. It keeps you on your toes,” she said, describing an apparent love-affair, “It is something that enables me to make a difference. This is the reason I want to be a judge – because I want to take that one step further.”

She was also asked about her experiences of working as an acting judge, and how that compared to a magistrate’s work and how she found the task of writing judgments.

Describing judgment writing as a “skill that has evolved quite a lot” she said there was more scrutiny of one’s work on the high court Bench
