Welcome Address By NBA Lagos Branch Chairman, Olabisi Makanjuola At The 2024 Law Week

Esteemed Colleagues and Legal Practitioners,

I welcome you to our highly anticipated Law Week, an event meticulously crafted to offer unparalleled insights and opportunities for professional growth. This year’s theme, “ChartingNew Legal Frontiers: Practice of Law in Nigeria, Cross-Border Alliances & Partnerships,” reflects our commitment to exploring the ever-evolving landscape of legal practice with precision and purpose. Picture this, not just as an ordinary gathering, but as a crucible of ideas where seasoned professionals and aspiring legal minds converge to engage in meaningful discourse.

Through insightful debates and thought-provoking discussions led by our carefully selected lineup of speakers, panellists, and moderators, we aim to shed light on the most pressing challenges and exciting opportunities facing our profession today and tomorrow. Of particular interest will be the riveting discussion on the future of the Nigerian Bar Association. This presents a unique opportunity for us to scrutinize visions and actively participate in shaping the future of our esteemed association.

In addition, it will be the platform for engagements between the bar and interests bench on matters of mutual interest and concern.

Moreover, our meticulously curated sessions covering essential topics such as legal technology, alternative dispute resolution, and international law are designed to armyou with practical strategies and insights to navigate the complexities of modern legal practice successfully.

We have also put together social events for lawyers and their families to look forward to, so we can kick back and relax, as well as build stronger networks among ourselves and families.

I am confident that the Lagos Law Week will not only inspire but also empower us all to reach new heights of excellence in our respective fields.

Your presence and contributions will
undoubtedly enrich the event, and I eagerly anticipate welcoming you all.

Warm regards,

Olabisi Makanjuola
Nigerian Bar Association, Lagos Branch
