*Says Present Circumstance In The Country Has Adversely Affected The Legal Profession

Former NBA Abuja Chairman, Yamah Desmond, has commended the leadership and members of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice on a successful (NBA-SLP) 2021 Annual Conference.

Recall that Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice on Sunday began its annual conference at Uyo, Akwa Ibom State which ended today.

He said: I take great pleasure in congratulating the leadership and members of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice (NBA-SLP), on this auspicious occasion of her 2021 Annual Conference.
Given the present circumstance in country which has adversely affected the Legal Profession and I commend the organizers for the choice of the theme “Law, Lawyers and the Next Generation”.

“Without pre-empting the upcoming sessions of the conference, we must take another look at our laws, to determine how much they have served in protecting our legal practice space. Apart from the internal militating factors, not the least the security situation in Nigeria, which has caused our practice space to shrink against the growing number of the younger generation of lawyers, we are equally grappling with the impact of globalisation which has taken a large chunk of legal work from us.

“Technological advancements have opened the Nigerian legal space with no corresponding or adequate legislation to allow for global participation while protecting job opportunities for lawyers licensed to practice in Nigeria.

“We must ensure to protect the future of the next generation lawyer and this must be done with positive and balanced preservative legislation as well as the implementation.

“Notwithstanding the security challenges, the organization and attendance at the conference were unprecedented.

“Congratulations to the members and the leadership of  Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice”
