The Nigerian Bar Association, Young Lawyers Forum (NBA YLF) has initiated a programme that would enable it focus on capacity building, continuing legal education, mentorship, enhanced welfare and support for young lawyers.
The group disclosed this in a statement, in which it also reaffirmed its commitment to achieving the purpose for which the Forum was established, which borders on articulating the welfare of Young Lawyers (lawyers within the first seven years of post-call to the Nigerian Bar), addressing concerns raised by the young lawyers and facilitating measures for their professional development.
In the statement issued by its Governing Council signed by Tobi Adebowale (Chairman) and Patricia Udeh (Secretary), NBA YLF said: “We are especially interested in ensuring that Young Lawyers are better prepared to assess and take advantage of the opportunities presented by changes in policies, laws and technology.
“We welcome everyone to the New Year 2020. A new year presents the opportunity of a new beginning and of renewed hope in accomplishing great things. Therefore, it is our hope that 2020 will be significantly marked by unprecedented growth and professional development for young lawyers.
“As we proceed, we will be counting on the support and cooperation of all Young Lawyers, our Learned Seniors and other associations within and outside the legal profession to accomplish our objectives for the benefit of the legal profession and the Nigerian society at large.”
