By Wellington G. Patrick, LINA Nimba County Correspondent
SANNIQUELLIE, February 13 (LINA) - Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor has admonished Liberian lawyers to dress appropriately in promotion of the ethics of the legal profession.
Speaking at the opening of the February Term of the 8th Judicial Circuit Court in Sanniquellie, Nimba County recently, he observed with grave concern that some lawyers are in the habit of appearing in court with incomplete dress code.
“A lawyer in court with incomplete dress suits is disgusting,” the Chief Justice pointed out.
He cautioned Liberian lawyers to demonstrate the love they have for the profession by their stylish appearance and the manner in which they handle their clients.
“We must not only show, but also prove to our fellow citizens that there is a need to cherish the justice system, based on the decency of work accomplished in the system, especially sustaining the peace of the land,” Cllr. Korkpor added.
