The Nigerian Bar Association, Lagos Branch is set to hold its Annual Law Week from Friday, June 16 to Friday, June 23, 2ķ023.
The theme of this year’s Law Week is, “Facing The Future: Law in a Globalized Economy”.
KINDLY SAVE THE DATES.
The theme seeks to interrogate the major question: what role does the law play in a globalized economy? And, in particular, are Nigerian legal practitioners equipped and/or prepared to operate as players in a globalized economy?
Other sub-themes will also look at issues arising from the globalization of the economy and the growing universality of the law, the relevance of Nigerian law to govern international transactions, the skill sets that are required for Nigerian jurists and lawyers to actively play in a globalized economic order, and the vexed question of the regulation of foreign lawyers who seek to practice in Nigeria.
The planning committee has come up with a rich line up of industry experts & panelists who will do justice to the theme & sub themes.
It promises to be interesting and educative!
There will also be the usual week-long line up of events such as Jumat/thanksgiving services, health walk/checks, aerobics/dance classes, football matches, charity visits, elder’s night & a closing themed party.
Towards ensuring a successful event, the Chairman of the Branch, Ikechukwu Uwanna has reappointed Mr Wale Adesokan, SAN as the Chairman of the Planning Committee for the Law Week while Prof. Abiola Sanni SAN will serve as the Alternate Chairman.
The law week will offer participants opportunities for networking and gaining valuable insights into the latest trends and developments in the law.
