Recall that one of the innovations in the recently amended NBA Constitution 2021, is the establishment of a Lawyers in Diaspora Forum (LDF). The forum is to serve as a platform to connect and provide a voice for all persons qualified to practice law in Nigeria, but resident outside Nigeria. This forum will also serve as a structured platform through which all lawyers in the diaspora may contribute their quota – individually and collectively – to the development of the Nigerian Bar, the Nigerian legal system, and the practice of law in Nigeria.
To join this forum, a prospective member must (i) be qualified to practice law in Nigeria; (ii) belong to a branch of the NBA; (iii) have paid his/her Bar Practice Fees; and (iv) be resident outside Nigeria. Anyone who meets these requirements is urged to kindly complete the attached form –
Kindly note that the personal data provided while completing this form will be used strictly by the NBA to maintain a central register for NBA lawyers in the diaspora and for communicating directly with its members on matters relating to the NBA generally, or to the forum specifically.
