The Law Firm of SPA Ajibade & Co. will be holding the 14th Edition of it’s signature Annual Business Luncheon on Thursday, 9th of December, 2021.
Introduced in 2008, the Annual Business Luncheon (ABL) is an S. P. A. Ajibade & Co. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) event directed at highlighting contemporary issues affecting the legal profession in Nigeria, with intent on assisting in identifying workable and practical solutions to these problems. Since inception, it has indeed become an annual staple of the legal community and the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) in Nigeria.
Recall that in December, 2020, the 13th Annual Business Luncheon which held virtually addressed the issue of regulation of the scale of charges for legal practice; and following this 2020 Luncheon, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) also revealed its plans to make recommendations on the regulation of charges by lawyers. A full recording of this 2020 Annual Business Luncheon is available at https://bit.ly/31Q6kE5 and a complete report on the event can still be assessed at https://bit.ly/3klutZz.
To consolidate on its previous events, the theme of the 2021 Annual Business Luncheon (#SPAACOABL2021) is: “Technology, Innovation and The Law: Challenges, Potentials and Possibilities in the Nigerian Legal Landscape”; and in furtherance of enhancing legal practice beyond boundaries, the 2021 edition would be focusing on the future of the law by maximising “Technology and Innovation” for the deployment and development of law in general – dispute resolution, the judiciary, alternative dispute resolution, governance & thought leadership and legal practice business, to mention but a few.
The #SPAACOABL2021 would draw on foreign/International experiences and perspectives in analysing our local engagement so far; as we craft a framework for the future of law with the reality of Technology and Innovation in Nigeria. The event would therefore be a glimpse into the future of the Legal profession in Nigeria by addressing the challenges, potentials and possibilities maximising technology across our varied practice areas for a mutually beneficial future – one that would “foster sustainable growth and development” for the system and its various stakeholders.
Mark your calendars – save the date.
