LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 1, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — A formal Friendship Agreement has been signed by Kristin Adrian, President of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA), and Xavier Chang (張志朋) President of Taipei Bar Association.

The agreement is designed to connect the cities’ legal communities through the exchange of ideas and information as well as creating a joint commitment to the rule of law.

The agreement was part of a week-long tour of Taiwan led by LACBA Trustee Michael Fern and CEO Stan Bissey. During a meeting with the Taipei Bar Association, President Adrian shared an overview of LACBA and the importance of bar associations in support of access to justice and the rule of law.

“LACBA was warmly welcomed by our new friends, dialogue was lively, and we look forward to continued opportunities to build the relationship, which is a significant step forward for LACBA,” states Adrian. “The signing gave the LACBA members who were fortunate to visit Taipei an opportunity to reflect on the hard work of its members and the citizens of Taiwan as they have worked to strengthen the institutions we value of democracy, freedom of speech and the rule of law.”

The Friendship Agreement is the first of its kind between Taipei and any U.S. bar association. Taipei and Los Angeles have been Sister Cities since 1979.
