In October, former section chairs David Robinson and David Garrett visited with the Daini Bar Association in Tokyo, Japan, hand-delivering a five-year Memorandum of Understanding between the North Carolina Bar Association and the Daini Bar. This partnership arose from our attorney exchange program visit to Tokyo and has continued ever since. The preamble to the MOU recites the reasons for our continued cooperation:

  • Recognizing the increasing interdependence of the international community and the global economy, and the challenges we face as organizations of the law profession to establish and deepen the mutual knowledge and understanding of our professions and professional organizations;
  • Recognizing the importance of developing a mutually beneficial relationship based on friendship and cooperation through exchanges between members of both our professional organizations and the exchange of information and materials; and
  • Desiring to strengthen the friendship and cooperation between us as organizations of the law profession through interactive communication.
