At the just concluded National Executive Committee meeting held in Abuja, the Nigerian Bar Association National Executives approved the “work being done by the NBA Remuneration Committee in developing a realistic and enforceable scale of charges for lawyers. This is with a view to address the issue of poor remuneration amongst lawyers.
Also addressed by the NEC is the issue of encroachment of non lawyers into the legal services. NBA-NEC decried the continued encroachment of non-lawyers (including corporate bodies and other institutions) into areas that are considered to be the preserve of legal practitioners through the offering of legal services, in many cases with the connivance
or support of some lawyers. The NEC then gave directives on the way forward.
