Enugu-based legal practitioner, Chukwuemeka Mbamala Esq, a former national officer of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) has added to his growing store of accolades, with the recent conferment on him of an Award for Excellence in Legal Entrepreneurship and Consistency. He bagged this recognition, courtesy of the Enugu branch of the Association, for his work in initiating the Legalsave Initiative for Lawyers.

The occasion was the Enugu Bar Dinner Night held on December 3, 2021 to mark the end of the branch’s Law Week. The Chairman of the branch, Hon. Jude Ezegwui, who presented the award to Mbamala, extolled the impact of the scheme on the fortunes of lawyers within and beyond the borders of the NBA Enugu branch.

Legalsave Initiative is a savings scheme which has, since its inception eleven years ago, assisted lawyers in saving enough funds to acquire such big-ticket items as cars, as well as pay their office and house rents, subscribe to law reports, among other critical interventions. The Chairman remarked that since its inception, neither the scheme nor its initiator, Chukwuemeka Mbamala, has been the subject of a single petition or litigation on account of impropriety, adding that instead, Mbamala has contributed immensely in capacity building activities for young lawyers by partially financing the attendance of a good number of them to the NBA’s various national conferences.

The Award conferment event was graced by the distinguished presence of the Bench, as well as notable personalities within and outside the Enugu Bar branch and Enugu State in general.
Apart from Mbamala, various awards were also presented to other deserving individuals at the occasion.
