“I admit all and severally into the Nigerian Bar”, this is one of the recurrent statements known and heard by every member of the legal profession (lawyer) in Nigeria. Indeed, the statement marks the moment of a great achievement in the life of every aspiring legal practitioner. But the joyous moment comes when it is said “you can now wear your wigs”.
The question to be asked here goes, is the reality of the legal practice intendem with all the pictures painted in the Nigerian Law School, of the status and “earnings” of a lawyer, which pictures are strongly engraved in the minds of the aspiring legal practitioners?
While in law school, you were exposed to alot of skills that will fetch you money in the course of your law practice. Mark you, no body guarantees when, where and how that fotune comes your way if at all its forth coming. Life comes in stages that are in no way skip-able, you are the creater your destiny.
Be creative while adhering strictly to the ethics and ethicates of the profession.
Welcome to the Bar.
Wishing you the best in your undertakings.
