Bar Assoc. Holds Assembly Today

By Edwin G. Wandah

The Liberian National Bar Association-LNBA is expected to hold its first Quarterly Assembly today in Monrovia with key important discussions surrounding the progress of the LNBA.

The program which takes place today on the grounds of the Temple of Justice will have lawyers and Attorneys-at Law arriving to form part of the legal body for their discussions; but some sources closed to the LNBA told this Paper that some of the issues to be discussed will include election since the tenure of the current leadership of the Bar is said to have expired.

An information brochure in the office of the Executive Director of the LNBA indicated that activities to grace the occasion will have to begin around 9:00 a.m., with the registration and contribution of lawyers, payment of Bar Dues, the purchasing of Assembly T-Shirts amongst others.

Cllr. Theophilus Gould, who is president of the LNBA during the formal opening session, will make special remark, followed by the adoption of the program agenda by a quorum of the LNBA with a subsequent prayer from the Clergy to kick start the occasion.

Others to make remarks at the assembly will include the Ministry of Justice, Trial Judges Association of Liberia, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Liberia, or a proxy, and will be followed by a brief presentation by Cllr. David A. B. Jallah including a brief report from the President of the LNBA, Cllr. Theophilus C. Gould.

Meanwhile, LNBA Vice President, Cllr. James N. Verdier, Jr. is also expected to acknowledge the audience, to be followed by the announcing of the next venue of the Second Quarterly Assembly of the LNBA.

The last third Quarterly Assembly of the LNBA was held in Fish Town River Gee County with several lawyers in attendance including Associate Justice, Justice Kabineh Ja’neh who represented the members of the Supreme Court Bench.
