Associate Justice Quits Local Bar Post

The president of the Maryland County Bar Association, a subset of the Liberian National Bar Association (LNBA), Justice Sie-A-Nyene G. Youh, has officially turned over the presidency of the association to her vice president, Atty Edwin Martin, in keeping with normal ascendency.

Turning over at a meeting of the local bar last Saturday in Monrovia, Associate Justice Youh pointed out that because of her present position, as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, she could no longer serve as president of the local bar and thanked the members of the local bar for their cooperation during her administration.

She made specific reference to the successful hosting of the first LNBA’s Assembly in Harper, Maryland County last year. “It was because of all of you that the assembly of the bar was successful,” she said.

Responding, Atty Martin lauded the outgoing president for her hard work, dedication and devotion to the association and promised to work with that entity and its members at all times.

Also speaking, Judge Comfort Natt, as a senior member of the local bar, challenged the new president to be assiduous and dedicated to the work of the local bar and urged him to live by example, and exhibit those virtues expected of a leader.
