The African Bar Association Young Lawyers Forum Nigeria has, in the past 2 days, held a series of interesting, highly educative and insightful sessions at its maiden Conference.

Day 3 promises to be even more exciting as it looks to tackle new topics and challenge the status quo.

These topics include:

  1. Financial Technology, Cryptocurrency and Blockchain (recall how in 2017/2018 the Central Bank of Nigeria put a ban of crypto transactions and how in 2020 the first bitcoin ATM was installed in Lagos?) What changed?
  2. Technology Law, Artificial intelligence, Data protection and privacy and Cyber security; with all the innovation in the world Of technology today are we ready to take on its resultant legal challenges?
  3. Renewable energy
  4. Intellectual Property, Sports and Media Practice – Agro-law – Space Law – Compliance and Regulatory – Media Law
  5. Online Dispute Resolution

Specialisation is a pathway to distinguish oneself in the practice of the legal profession and what better way to set out than to listen to experienced professionals who have made and are still making their marks in these areas.

Our panellists include O.M. Atoyebi, SAN; Olumide Babalola, Foluke Akinmoladun, Senator Ihenyen, Marx Ikongbeh, Anne Agi, Ridwan Oloyede and Kelechi Achinonu.
