Ever thought about what the practice of law in Nigeria would be 10 to 15 years from the present?
Thus, our Principal Partner, Professor Fabian Ajogwu, SAN spoke on “The Future of Law and Regulation of Legal Practitioners” at the Nigerian Bar Association Annual General Conference 2019. The NBA Annual General Conference presents a unique yearly opportunity for legal practitioners to interrogate the very essence of the profession and share latest knowledge and innovative ways of delivering effective solutions to clients and the immediate environment in which they operate.
The theme of this year’s conference was: Facing the Future and our Principal Partner, Professor Fabian Ajogwu, SAN spoke on The Future of Law and Regulation of Legal Practitioners, a fantastic presentation indeed. Below are excerpts from the plenary session, voiced by our Principal Partner, etched in our memories forever:
For every Lawyer who tolls the wrong path, it is a tragedy for all other Lawyers.”
“The Future of the Law is self regulation.”
“We need to become a serious self-regulatory organisation else a tragedy may befall our legal profession.”
“We need to take more charge of discipline in our profession.”
“The moment is now to strengthen ourselves as a self-regulatory organisation.”
“The journey to the top is based on learning and observing.”
