Hello, Distinguished Senior Advocates of Nigeria, Learned Seniors, and Learned Colleagues!
I’m requesting your kind assistance to complete this online questionnaire, which is for NIGERIAN LAWYERS only, please. The researcher is also a Nigerian Lawyer who was called to the Nigerian Bar almost three decades ago.
The questionnaire is the instrument for an empirical law-reform and policy-relevant academic legal research that aims to contribute to the modernisation of the Nigerian legal system, which will benefit all Nigerian lawyers and citizens.
The questionnaire is anonymous (you are not required to provide your name, but you have the option to do so) because only honest answers are necessary, so your identity is not disclosed.
Thank you so much for your precious time.
The Chairman of the Port Harcourt Branch of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) is formally aware of this survey, and he has graciously approved this questionnaire to be distributed to lawyers. Following that approval, the print version of this questionnaire was distributed to lawyers during the monthly meetings of the Port Harcourt Bar (June and July 2018).
This online version of the questionnaire has been designed to make it possible to reach Nigerian lawyers all over Nigeria, for the best possible nationwide coverage.
It takes just few minutes to complete the questionnaire on your mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or any device you are using.
Please, contribute to the modernisation of the Nigerian legal system and the development of Nigerian law by completing this questionnaire.
Once again, thank you so much for your precious time and your kind assistance through filling out and submitting this questionnaire online, thereby contributing to the development of Nigerian law and the Nigerian legal system.
