So much has been said and written about the one year at the Nigerian Law School. However, the five years spent as a law undergraduate in the university are very critical years which go a long way to determine success at the Law School and beyond. This series looks to lend a helping to prospective lawyers at that stage.

Oludays(with apologies to my Learned Senior, Falz), whether regular calendar breaks or “strike breaks” are a very important time as a law undergraduate. Indeed, it’s the time to chill, travel, relax and maybe even relapse! Oludays, however, can be a time to rehearse for the future we cannot wait to get to.Below is a list of good ways a law student could spend his/her break:Continue reading

THE NBA NATIONAL ELECTIONS 2016; MEET THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

AB 1

jk 1The president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) would be determined in the national elections scheduled to hold on 30th & 31st July, 2016. Other positions would also be fought for but then the office of the president as usual is the main focus of interest.

Two great and eminent gentlemen have thrown their hat into the race and have been traversing the length and breadth of the country to sell their candidacy to lawyers. With beautiful campaign websites, catchy social media ads and teams of zealous volunteers the campaigns I must confess have been a departure from the rancorous campaigns of the past.

Meet the Presidential Candidates

Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN (JK) is squaring out with Abubakar Balarabe Mahmoud SAN (AB). Continue reading

   LAWYERS AND THE LAW; THE PSYCHOLOGY OF A NIGERIAN MYTH

 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
