    Afam Osigwe, SAN, participated in the Law Week organized by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Minna Branch, where he contributed as a panelist during the second day’s session focused on “Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Nigerian Legal Practice.” During his discourse, Osigwe emphasized the transformative impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the legal profession and urged his colleagues to adapt to this new paradigm. Specifically, he highlighted concerns regarding the protection of clients’ data, stressing the importance for lawyers to address issues related to data privacy within the context of AI integration.

    Additionally, Osigwe actively engaged in a panel discussion on the first day centered on “Independence of the Judiciary.” During this session, he passionately advocated for the autonomy of the judiciary and underscored the pivotal role played by the NBA in safeguarding judicial independence, thereby ensuring the rule of law.

    Moreover, in a hangout organized in his honor by Mr. Mohammed Ndayako, SAN, Osigwe seized the opportunity to foster camaraderie among legal practitioners. During the gathering, he urged his fellow lawyers to collaborate with the NBA Remuneration Committee, of which he serves as chairman, to facilitate the implementation of the Legal Practitioners’ Remuneration Order 2023. Osigwe emphasized that by actively engaging with this committee and assuming a proactive stance akin to that of law enforcement officers, lawyers could effectively advocate for and secure a more favorable remuneration regime.

    Overall, Afam Osigwe’s participation in these events exemplifies his commitment to advancing the legal profession in Nigeria, advocating for judicial independence, embracing technological advancements, and championing the welfare of legal practitioners.
