LNBA Prexy Calls For Professional Lawyers

By Comfort M. Johnson, LINA

MONROVIA, March 14 (LINA) - The President of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA), Cllr  Theophilus Gould, has advised lawyers to conduct themselves professionally to avoid bringing discredit to the legal profession.

He regretted that some lawyers do not observe the dress code while others have poor command of the English Language, adding, “As a lawyer you must be properly dressed and know hhow to speak English very well to win the respect of your clients.”

According to the Liberia News Agency, Cllr. Gould proffered the advice in his statement at the First Quarterly Convention of the LNBA held at the Temple of Justice Friday.

Also speaking at the convention, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Jamesetta Wolokolie, also advised lawyers to demonstrate respect for the court system and judiciary.

She called on lawyers to plead certain cases on a pro-bono basis, noting that not all cases should be handled for money.

At the same time, the head Judge of the Commercial Court at the Temple of Justice in Monrovia, Judge Eva Mappy Morgan, called on the LNBA to conduct a training workshop for young lawyers to avoid disrespect to the court system.

She said over the years she has noticed that most young lawyers are not trained in the ethics of their profession, adding that they need more training to be good lawyers.

Meanwhile, the LNBA has reiterated its call for the fast-tracking of the probe into the death of Attorney Michael Allison.

Atty. Allison was discovered dead on a beach in the Sinkor suburb of Monrovia last February.
