The Young Lawyers’ Committee is one of the Committees of the NBA-SBL which facilitates the professional development of Nigerian Commercial Lawyers with the aim of raising the standard of business law practice in Nigeria.
The Committee oversees activities geared towards providing young lawyers with education, social activities, networking opportunities and ensures active representation for young lawyers in the Nigeria Bar Association under the umbrella of the Section on Business Law. Most importantly, the Committee provides leadership opportunities to members who might not otherwise have access to such opportunities, while providing new and innovative programs that benefit young lawyers relatively new to the Nigerian legal practice.
To this end, the Committee provides educational programs and materials for the improvement and learning of practitioners and academics in all ADR procedures. The Committee also aims to contribute to the enhancement of Arbitration and ADR practice in Nigeria and to draw attention to problems in law, which impede the effective use of these processes. The Committee is chaired by Ms. Bukola Olabiyi.
