10 Things No One Knew At Law School – Learning To Practice Or Practicing To Learn.

You will agree the education of a lawyer should not be left only to the Nigerian Law school and continuous learning is a big part of every lawyers career.

Moreover, this is true because there are quite a number of things the fresh lawyer is not exposed to in the law school, these includes

1.     How to run a Law a firm.

2.     How to make a law firm profitable.

3.     How to manage staff.

4.     How to get briefs and the art of rain – making.

5.     How to decide a perfect law firm structure.

6.     How to build a relationship with other members of the bar.

The above mentioned list is inconclusive as there are a great many things lawyers are not taught in law school. This brings to the fore, the importance of pupillage in a lawyer’s career, especially a young lawyers.

As we start to build the Lawyers of tomorrow, it is importance that we begin to look carefully into their careers and how to better prepare them for the uncertain future that lies ahead.

Furthermore, we need to stress the need for continuous education for all lawyers. This topic has been set aside to be discussed at a breakout session of the Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association.

Many senior lawyers and erudite panelist will be on hand to share their experience and most certainly younger lawyers must be in the room to learn from them.
