The Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice John Tsoho has assured delegates to the forthcoming Nigerian Bar Association Section on Legal Practice (NBA-SLP) Annual Conference that they would not suffer any disability for attending the conference.

Speaking while receiving a high-level delegation of the NBA-SLP Conference Planning Committee (CPC) led by Chief Paul Harris Ogbole SAN, Justice Tsoho stated that lawyers who register for the conference would be granted adjournment to enable them to fully participate in the annual fiesta.

He lauded the theme of the conference, “Legal practice beyond borders,” adding that it would make lawyers to expand their horizons and refuse to be constrained by their immediate scope of practice or knowledge.

Justice Tsoho thanked the Section for identifying with the court, adding that the Bar and Bench belong to the same constituency even while playing different crucial roles.

He urged lawyers to be more steadfast in protecting the interest of both the privileged and the common man, and decried the practice of lawyers taking up litigation solely for purpose of being awarded the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

Speaking earlier, Ogbole noted that NBA-SLP is the Section that deals with core law practice especially as it concerns litigation and ancillary matters, urging the Chief Judge to grant two free days to enable members of the Bar and Bench to attend the eagerly awaited conference.

He described lawyers as the mouthpiece of the judiciary, stressing the need for improved welfare package for the judiciary in order to boost the growth of legal practice.

Ogbole emphasized the need for lawyers to periodically embark on training through conferences and seminars, saying that the theme of the conference was carefully chosen to cater to the needs of all delegates.

In his remarks, the Alternate Chairman of the Conference Planning Committee, Mr. Tonye Krukrubo SAN thanked Justice Tsoho for the warm reception accorded the delegation, adding that it is a strong indication of his commitment to the growth of the legal profession.
