This year’s Conference is anticipated to have approximately 13,000 delegates from the Bar and Bench in attendance. Also expected are business persons from different sectors, technocrats as well as political leaders from within and outside Nigeria.”

The core objective of the 2022 NBA Conference will be to host a world-class conference, with an in-depth discourse on critical issues affecting the legal profession and the country in general, facilitated by the most eminently qualified resource persons.”
“Discussions at the Conference will focus on the need for the legal profession to engage boldly with global evolutionary trends and will comprise over 30 technical sessions where experts will lead conversations primarily aimed at envisioning the future of the legal profession within the context of a rapidly transiting world and business environment, triggered in part, by the revolutionary exploits and expressions of technology and the historic coronavirus pandemic”, the letter read in part.
