WOW! The wait is over!
The brand-new edition of Nigeria’s foremost law events magazine, NEWSWIRE, is OUT!
In this new and improved edition, we chronicle for you all the events of the 2021 Conference season of the Nigerian legal community, and captured all the proceedings as knowledgeable and influential personalities from all walks of life advanced the cause of the law in its various dimensions, as an indispensible factor in the good ordering of society. Ibadan, the sprawling capital city of Oyo State, kicked the 2021 season rolling as it hosted the year’s Annual Conference of the NBA’s Section on Public Interest and Development Law (SPIDEL).
Not to be outdone, the Section on Legal Practice (SLP) brought together denizens in the temple of justice as well as other leading professionals to Uyo, the serene capital of Akwa Ibom State. Then it was the turn of Lagos, the country’s commercial hub and cultural melting-pot, where the Section on Business Law (SBL) deliberated on ways to leverage on the 21st-century technological revolution that is increasingly defining our lives, work and business models. NEWSWIRE was a front-row-seat witness at each of these events – as you can see from the lively narrative and colourful photos contained in this edition.
We were also on ground during the 2021 Law Week of the NBA’s Lagos Branch, a week of high-level intellectual and social interaction. The significance of the ‘hybrid’ nature of these events (in underlining the convergence between digital technology and the Covid 19 scourge) was not lost on delegates and guests, as it painted an intriguing picture of the future of law practice. .
This is the future being signposted by personalities like the subject of this edition’s Cover Story, namely, Adeleke Alex-Adedipe (Partner at the law firm of Duale, Ovia & Alex-Adedipe) as well as by three insightful opinion pieces by our regular columnists.
