Jacques Letang Appointed Bar Federation Representative to Judiciary Council

Haiti President Michel Martelly inducted Jacques Letang, President of the Bar of Coteaux, as the newly-appointed Representative of the Bars Federation of Haiti (FBH). He will provide legal counsel to the Superior Council of the Judiciary (CSPJ), in place of Nehemy Joseph, who recently resigned.


Letang, also Vice President of the Bar Federation of Haiti, has a double Masters of Law degree, issued by the Université Catholique of Lyon. After earning his advanced law degrees, he has held the office of Magistrate, recently becoming a partner in newly-established law firm, Avocats & Avocats LP, International Lawyers Group.

At the swearing-in ceremony, those in attendance included presidents of Parliament's upper and lower houses, Simon Dieuseul Desras, and Jean Tolbert Alexis; Minister of Justice, Jean Renel Sanon, and CSPJ President, Me Arnel Alexis Joseph.

President Martelly, during his introductory remarks, informed Jacques Letang of his mediator role in promoting a productive work relationship between public defenders and the courts, the FBH and CSPJ. CSPJ President Joseph added that Letang is the right choice for the position due to his background in public and international law.

Magistrate Jacques Letang is well-suited for his new role, having provided legal counsel to various private and public organizations over the years. He also has broad experience in several fields of law, among them commercial and banking; family, divorce, and adoption; and criminal and human rights representation.

As part of his final remarks, Martelly encouraged the newly-configured CSPJ to challenge themselves to new heights of judicial effectiveness.
