Are you a young lawyer with interest in Arbitration? Do you want to broaden your horizon in the law and practice of Arbitration? Do you need a mentor in the field of Arbitration? You don’t have to look any further. An Arbitration Mentorship Session for Young Lawyers has been scheduled to hold on Friday 21st April 2017 at 1A Remi Olowude Street, Lekki, Lagos, Nigeria by 3 p.m. prompt. The event will be the first of its kinds for young lawyers.


The Arbitration Mentorship Session for Young Lawyers is organized by the Young Lawyers Forum (YLF) of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Lagos Branch and the Lagos Court of Arbitration, Young Arbitrators Network (LCA, YAN).



The theme for the Arbitration Mentorship Session is;


“Growth and development of Arbitration in Africa: Challenges and Opportunities”

This session’s theme is very instructive in view of the congestion in our courts and the heavy case load of the judiciary. The session will be an enlightening time where the boundless opportunities that Arbitration can afford the African justice system and how best to combat its challenges will be discussed by Arbitration gurus and other stakeholders. Young lawyers will also be afforded an opportunity to voice out their opinions on the challenges faced by young lawyers in the practice of Arbitration.


The Arbitration session feature a constellation of stars in the Nigerian Arbitration field and the legal profession. The doyens of Arbitration in Nigeria Mr. Tunde Fagbohunlu (SAN) and Mrs. Doyin Rhodes-Vivour would share their knowledge on Arbitration and mentorship to young lawyers.


Attendance to the Arbitration Mentorship Session for Young Lawyers is open to lawyers, academics, ADR advocates, students and other interested members of the public. The session will afford participants an opportunity to network with leading figures in the Nigerian civil society, legal profession and top Arbitrators as well as hook up mentors.

So don’t be left out. Remember attendance is FOC! Free of Charge and you can’t quantify the gains of attendance. So share the word and where else would you rather be?
