President’s Message


Tadashi ARA, President of the JFBA

 




Dear Friends and Colleagues,


I am honored to have been elected to serve as the President of the Japan Federation of Bar Associations (JFBA), receiving more than 10,000 votes from JFBA members, in the revote that took place on March 11, 2020, by doing so winning a plurality in 40 bar associations which is over three-quarters of all bar associations. I look forward to serving to the very best of my ability during my two-year term starting in April. I would like kindly ask for your continued support for the duration of my term.
