“Mr. President, my name is (withheld by me) and I am from the Enugu Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA). I received a copy of the statement of account of the NBA which has been presented for adoption. I was wondering why it was not given to us with our conference materials at the beginning of the conference so we can be properly prepared to deliberate on it before its adoption”Continue reading

   LAWYERS AND THE LAW; THE PSYCHOLOGY OF A NIGERIAN MYTH

      FB_20160617_10_15_04_Saved_Picture

As a child, I always wanted to be a lawyer. I can’t recall exactly what got me attracted to the profession, but I remember I always admired their gait, neat and descent sense of dressing and plenty big grammar. They always seemed different from every other person to me back then. I remember rewinding several times, a part in a movie where a lawyer was defending a lady in a law court. I was exactly awed by the intelligence and eloquence of the lawyer in that movie. I wanted to hear him quote the law over and over again, it tickled my fancy a whole lot.Continue reading

Victoria Wahu; The Young Kenyan Lawyer

As I was growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a lawyer. My only knowledge about what lawyers did was that they defended people; sort of a human rights advocacy. I was privilege enough not to have diverted my mind from the career path I wanted to pursue and stuck on studying law.Continue reading

We continue with the concluding part of Nelo’s Through the Eyes of a Female Lawyer. Enjoy and don’t forget to add your comments and subscribe for our newsletters!

Nelo Akorah

When it comes to a society like ours where being a woman is not of much worth as being a man, or where women are considered subordinate to any man and where they are seen as incomplete or not of much value like the male folks, the demand for her professional service does not roll in easily. It takes her clear hard work, courage, determination, favour from God, consistency and years of experience for her to be recognized or be paid for her services, and be impacted financially.Continue reading

“ARE NIGERIAN LAWYERS CROOKS OR BRILLIANT?” – THE VIEWS OF A SCIENTIST!

The legal profession is a highly revered profession. It has refused to fall from the pedestal it has been placed on since time immemorial.

However, talking about the profession in Nigeria gives it a new front: not good for the optics. Using the percentage of the type of people that Nigerian lawyers are able to save from going to jail and the type of people they are not able to keep away from jail make me look at them with disdain.Continue reading

LAWYERS WHY BLOG?

It’s a question I have asked myself. Legal practice and blogging (especially the freestyle blogging ) do they blend? Yea blogging is the in thing now but can they ever mix? I am young and restless. I came into legal practice with a lot of energy and passion! Smoking hot and blazing for the zenith, but was I disappointed or heartbroken? Nah! Surprised or maybe shocked should be the right word. Better still I was maniacally bewildered apologies to Hon. Patrick Obaighagbon.Continue reading
