Adeboro SAN Advocates For Better Welfare Packages For Lawyers


    An Abuja-based Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Mr Adamson Adeboro on Thursday advocated for a positive change in the status of Nigerian lawyers to ensure improvement in their well-being. Adeboro said this in an interview with newsmen in Abuja. I join other senior lawyers to advocate for the revolution of lawyers to ensure that their wellbeing is being taken care of in terms of welfare packages,” he said.

    Adeboro urged the government to provide an enabling environment for practitioners to thrive. He expressed concern that so many lawyers have no place to practice after their graduation because government organisations are saturated.

    “A lot of lawyers are coming out from the universities with the intention to practice.

    “However, the government organisations are saturated, they are no longer taking job lawyers. “Now, the burdens are on the lawyers who have law firms,” Adeboro said. He said that the lawyers who are also employers of labour also have their own difficulties because of the economic realities in the country. “So, there is a limit to the number of lawyers such lawyers can employ, otherwise they will overburden their own resources,” Adeboro said.
