High Court Hearing Petitions For Admission To Bar

By Ballah M. Kollie

MONROVIA, December 6 (LINA) - The Supreme Court has begun hearing into petitions filed by 37 Attorneys-at-Law for admission into the Court’s Bar.

It is required that Attorneys, who practice law for five years, apply to the high court for admission into its bar to allow them to practice or plead cases before its bench.

As required, the applicants will be tested to prove their qualification before being admitted into the Bar.

Unless admitted, lawyers can be limited in pleading cases of appeal to the high court.

Chief Justice Francis S. Korkpor has mandated that all Counsellors-at-Law be present at the hearing.

It can be recalled that in late 2015, over 30 Attorneys-at-Law were admitted to the Supreme Court Bar.
