We must
embrace IT and the innovations it engenders in the practice- Paul Usoro sends
goodwill message to Young Lawyers Forum (YLF)

The learned silk who has pledged
his commitment to the young lawyers’ forum today has sent out his well wishes
to the forum and it has been captured below:

It is with immense delight that I
felicitate with the National Chairman, the Governing Council and the entire
members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Young Lawyers Forum (YLF) on this
auspicious occasion of its summit, which is scheduled to hold from today,
Wednesday 18 April, 2018 to Friday, 20 April 2018 in Lagos.
Undoubtedly, the theme of this year’s
summit; “Transforming Legal Practice for Young Lawyers: The option of
information and communication Technology”, clearly resonates with the desire of
every progressive lawyer, particularly as it relates to the development of
legal practice in the area of Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
Indeed, legal practice globally, has become IT based, and we will be stagnating
the legal practice in Nigeria if we do not embrace IT and the innovations it
engenders in the practice.

The future of legal practice in
our dear country, Nigeria, rest in the hands of the young lawyers, and as
seniors at the bar, whether individually or collectively, we have a
responsibility to make legal practice more enthralling, formidable and
lucrative for the young Lawyers, in line with global trends. Moreso, the
Nigerian government obviously has a critical role to play in making the
internet access seamless and affordable. The NBA leadership must, therefore, be
able to prevail on government to live up to this expectation. It is only by
this means that we can be certain of a bright future of the legal practice in

I congratulate and thank members
of the YLF immensely on/for this giant stride and wish you all a propitious

Long Live the NBA Young Lawyers

Long Live the Nigerian Bar

Long Live the Federal Republic of
