The history regarding the formation of the National Association of Trial Judges of Liberia is very scanty.  One version states that prior to 1980, there existed a body to run the affairs of Judges within the Judiciary, but there are no records of leadership and activities.  The body however became dormant from 1980 up to and including some part of the war years, before former Probate Court Judge, Frances Johnson Morris and Civil Law Court Judge, M. Wilkins Wright led the organization.  Notwithstanding their interventions to revive the Body, It became inactive again for few years before Judge William B. Metzger re-organized the Judges and led them until 2003, when Judge J. Boima Kontoe was requested by the members to serve as Interim President with responsibility to draw-up a Constitution.  Judge Kontoe faithfully executed the mandate and the Constitution named and styled the Organization, “National Association of Trial Judges of Liberia”.   
Credit and due deference must be given to our founding members and officers; however, the Association actually took root and became catering to the welfare and wellbeing of its members beginning 2007, when Judge Yussif D. kaba, Resident Judge, Sixth Judicial Circuit, Montserrado County was democratically elected as President.

 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to cater to the well-being and welfare of our members through economic empowerment, advocacy and enlightenment.

 

OUR VISION
