Acting Chief Justice of the Federation, Honourable Justice Walter Onnoghen, has made it clear that the Supreme Court is worried with the seeming decline in the quality of practice at the Bar.

Justice Onnoghen made the observation while presiding at the Supreme Court session in Abuja on Tuesday.

He said the apex court has taken the option of assisting to train lawyers as they appear before it in the interest of the friendly tradition between the Bar and the Bench.
However, this should not be taken for granted, he said.

The CJN tasked lawyers to improve their practice by constantly seeking knowledge, which he described as the foundation for learning. Lawyers, he said, must learn the basic tools of their trade; they should never be tired to learn and should learn from their seniors and even from judges.

Justice Onnoghen stated that the standard of practice must continue to improve. He said that senior lawyers, in particular, need to up their game and set a good standard for those who are learning and training under them.

“The juniors must develop an interest to learn and must keep asking and asking questions until they reach the stage of maturity at the Bar. Nobody should take anything for granted at all,” the CJN advised.
