The Maryland Bar Association has recently distributed some items including carbon sheets, legal papers and typewriters amongst others to several courts in Maryland County.
The donation of the items were made on behalf of the local bar by its president Atty. Edwin Martin who said the presentation was in fulfilment of pledge made by the former president of the local bar, now Associate Justice, Her Honour Sie-A-Neyene Youh.
The items donated included 40 cartons of Legal papers, three cartons of folders, two cartons of carbon sheets and other assorted stationery items. The beneficiaries of the donations were the 4th Judicial Circuit Court, Harper City Magisterial Court, Pleebo City Magisterial Court, Gedetarbo Magisterial Court, Monolu City Magisterial Court and the Barobo Magistrial Court all of Maryland County.
At the distribution ceremony, the Development Superintendent informed the Bar’s president that the county allocated a lot adjacent the Harper City Hall for the construction of the Legal Aid office. The delegation was then taken on an inspection tour of the land immediately after the meeting.
