Below is the Message from the NBA PS.




The Nigerian Bar Association Technical Committee for the Conference Planning of the 2019 Annual General Conference held a meeting yesterday, the 16th of May, 2019 in Lagos. The Committee deliberated on alot of issues and received reports from the various sub committees on preparations for the Annual General Conference to be held in Lagos at the Hotel Eko & Suites and Harbour Point (easy walking distance between each other). Presentations were made on critical issues like conference materials, socials, logistics, accommodation, speakers. The Committee took into primary consideration complaints of members regarding previous conferences and the need to satisfy the generality of members of the NBA.

The TCCP affirmed it’s readiness to deliver a world class conference that will also be pocket-friendly in line with the assurances of the NBA President, Paul Usoro, SAN. In this regard, the TCCP recommended and same was approved by the NBA President for a drastic reduction in the conference fees for lawyers between the ages of 1-9 years at the bar. In furtherance of this the NBA President approved the TCCP’ s recommendation that lawyers between the ages of 1-4 years and 5-9 years at the bar shall be entitled to a 25% discount on early bird registration. The TCCP also resolved to retain the conference fees as scheduled for the 2018 conference (which was the same as that of 2017 conference). Therefore, the TCCP refused to increase the conference fees that were paid for the 2018 conference, and added a further discount for early birds only for members between 1-9 years of call.

Further information on the commencement of registration and the payment portal shall be released soon.
