Teacher, Prof. Ernest Ojukwu,SAN congratulates the Chairman of the Younger Lawyers Forum Wada Ahmed, Alternate Chair Dayo Ashonibare, the rest of the officers and members for the inauguration of the Young Lawyer Forum today by the NBA President, A.B Mahmud,SAN.
According to Teacher, this forum provides a platform to engineer the brave new bar promised by the president.
On the 30th August 2016, Teacher had advised that “one thing that we cannot afford to continue to paper over is the way young lawyers are treated in some of our law firms.
Many young lawyers are treated shabbily and paid very poorly.
The Bar must set employment rules for law firms and enforce them”. Teacher also advised the young lawyers to take up their roles as future leaders, conscious of social justice and ethical values as no reform or transformation of the legal profession will materialize without the young lawyers.
