Judge Urges Lawyers To Attend Court Openings
Johnson Liway, LINA Grand Bassa County Correspondents

BUCHANAN, May 15 (LINA) - Judge George W. Smith of the Second Judicial Circuit Court of Grand Bassa County has admonished members of the Judiciary, especially lawyers, to always attend formal openings of court as a mark of respect for the circuit within which they practice.

Judge Smith said “when lawyers attend formal openings of court en masse, this awakens the consciousness of the Liberian populace as to the value of adherence to the rule of law.”

According to the Liberia News Agency, Judge Smith made the statement when delivering his charge at the formal opening of the May Term of Court last Monday, May 12.

He said it may be a burden to attend formal openings of court, but it is a burden that one consciously assumed when he/she decided to join the “Black Gown” society.

Meanwhile, Judge Smith has said there are 14 cases on the docket, with six of them being criminal and eight civil, noting that criminal cases will take precedence.

He urged citizens to respect the rule of law and judicial actors to remember the motto of the Liberia National Bar Association, which is “Adherence to the rule of law”

For her part, the President of the Grand Bassa Bar Association, Cllr. F. Juah Lawson said members of the Grand Bassa Bar are willing and ready to work with the Circuit in the dispense of justice.
