He said discourse around an independent judiciary speaks for itself, noting that interactions at whatever levels are regulated by law.
He made the observation when he served as keynote speaker Friday at a program commemorating Law Day which was observed by members of the Liberia National Bar Association (LNBA).
The program, held in the Banquet Hall of the Temple of Justice on Capitol Hill in Monrovia, was attended by the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the Supreme Court, members of the LNBA, and an array of dignitaries, including government officials.
“Rights and obligations created by various relations are significantly determined by both national and international laws,” Justice Ja’neh noted, adding, “To strengthen the independence of the Judiciary, I recommend that both the judiciary and the Bar Association work together in instituting periodic legal education programs primarily focusing on ethics and enhancing professional conduct.”
According to Justice Ja’neh, the credibility of the courts inspires respect for the legal profession, especially when they operate based on polices.
Law Day observance began in Liberia in 2006.
Though not celebrated as a national holiday, the day is commemorated by members of the LNBA.
