This was the beginning of a partnership that was to develop into one of Jamaica’s outstanding law firms. They were later joined by another young lawyer, Noel N. Nethersole, who was admitted to practice in 1931. He joined as a partner, and the firm came to be known as Judah, Randall & Nethersole, carrying on practice at 11, Duke Street in Kingston.
