This sponsorship for Young Lawyers is part of efforts by the NBA and UNECA to support the work of the Federal Government of Nigeria at rebuilding the North-East.
The young lawyer is the future of the legal profession in Nigeria and this brings the total number of Young Lawyers sponsored by the NBA to the NBA-AGC 2017 to 105. Welcome to the #NBA2017AGC …welcome to #ABraveNewBar
