The Chairman of the Mentoring Committee of the Body of Benchers, Chief Joe-Kyari Gadzama SAN has welcomed the 4,711 new wigs to Africa’s largest Bar.

Saying that it was his pleasure to be a part of the Call to Bar ceremonies for the new wigs, Gadzama congratulated the new wigs that finished with excellent results and encouraged others to keep their heads up and focus on making marks in the legal profession.

Gadzama announced that the Mentoring Committee would soon commence a Mentoring programme where members of the Body of Benchers would mentor young lawyers of zero to 7 years post-call experience.

The programme would commence in the first quarter of 2023 with a session for members of the Body of Benchers (Mentors) to elucidate the guidelines and modalities for the Mentoring scheme. A similar session would be held for the prospective mentees afterwards.

He stated that the mentees would have the opportunity to give feedback on their Mentors and vice-versa. Afterwards, certificates would be issued to the participants.

He urged young lawyers to anticipate more information on the programme soon.
