The Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Lawbreed Limited, Mrs. Adejoke Layi-Babatunde was a notable awardee at the 2021 Annual ESQ Legal Award ceremonies which lighted up the cavernous interiors of the Landmark Event Centre in Lagos, as she carted home the coveted Legal Amazon of the Year Award.

NEWSWIRE Law and Events Magazine’s correspondent in Lagos reports that the applause that reverberated across the event venue as Mrs. Layi-Babatunde’s name was announced, was a testimony to the tremendous impact her organization, Lawbreed, has made in the area of legal scholarship in Nigeria, as it publishes the Judgments of Supreme Court of Nigeria (S.C. Report) on the authority of the Supreme Court). These publications have been universally acclaimed as accurate, authoritative and affordable.

A Law graduate of University of Ife (now Obafemi Awolowo University), Ile-Ife, Nigeria, Mrs. Adejoke Layi-Babatunde is a legal practitioner and the Managing Editor of Judgments of the Supreme Court of Nigeria (simply known as S.C. Reports) as well as the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Lawbreed Limited. The Amazon is also the Executive Director of Lawbreed Foundation; an Associate Member of (Women in Business (WIMBIZ);, a Member of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA); a Member of the Board of Trustees, Concerned Parents and Educators Network (CPE), and, of course, a loyal Member of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

Her contributions to the legal profession through mentorship for young lawyers, the Lawbreed Foundation through the ‘Time Out with Masters’ event, her passion for the next generation, women and children (through FIDA) are worthy of note. Mrs Adejoke Layi-Babatunde believes very strongly in preparing the next generation, to whom the generational baton will be handed to.

NEWSWIRE’s correspondent also reports that it was a big night for numerous other awardees, representing various practice areas in the legal ecosystem – most notably recognition for 40 under-40 high-flyers who are blazing trails in the business of law, as well as law firms whose practice-based teams have distinguished themselves over the years, and a Lifetime Achievement Award to a colossus of the legal profession in Nigeria.
