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.

WHY THE INTRODUCTION OF PRE-BAR EXAMS BY P.L.O. LUMUMBA WAS A DELUSION

Today, we hear the views of a Scientist and Public Commentator on the brilliance or crookedness of Nigerian Lawyers! If you don’t like his views, your reactions are welcomed. Sit back and enjoy. From the horse’s mouth, sorry I meant the mouth 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
