NBA-ICLE Forges Groundbreaking Partnership with Olaniwun Ajayi LP to Build Legal Knowledge Repository

The Nigerian Bar Association’s Institute of Continuing Legal Education (NBA-ICLE) has forged a pioneering partnership with Olaniwun Ajayi LP, one of Nigeria’s foremost law firms, to develop a centralised digital repository for legal resources. This first-of-its-kind initiative aims to democratise access to vital knowledge within Nigeria’s legal community.

The announcement was made via an email circulated by Tobenna Erojikwe, Chairman of the Governing Board of the NBA-ICLE, who expressed his delight at this strategic collaboration. “On behalf of the President of the NBA and the Board of the NBA-ICLE, I am delighted to announce that the NBA-ICLE has entered into a strategic partnership with Olaniwun Ajayi LP for the building and maintenance of a central repository of all NBA-ICLE materials, whether virtual or print,” Erojikwe stated.

This fully accessible database, slated for launch in the second or third quarter of 2024, will be a game-changer for Nigerian lawyers seeking to enhance their professional development and stay abreast of the latest legal developments. Erojikwe emphasised the repository’s significance, noting, “The repository will be a fully accessible database that will be open to all members of the NBA for use at no cost.”

Underscoring Olaniwun Ajayi LP’s commitment to this groundbreaking initiative, the firm has generously covered the entire platform development costs. Wolemi Esan, Deputy Managing Partner of Olaniwun Ajayi LP, expressed his firm’s enthusiasm for the project, stating, “Olaniwun Ajayi LP is happy to cover the platform development costs as part of our commitment to supporting the NBA-ICLE. Leading the ICLE’s faculty for the finance training reinforced my desire to democratise knowledge. This is a responsibility that we owe those following in our footsteps.”

The NBA-ICLE has long been at the forefront of providing high-quality continuing legal education to Nigerian lawyers, ensuring they remain well-informed and equipped to navigate the ever-evolving legal landscape. With this new digital repository, the institute aims to take its mission to new heights, enabling seamless access to a wealth of resources, including virtual and print materials.

In an era where knowledge is power, this partnership between the NBA-ICLE and Olaniwun Ajayi LP represents a significant stride towards levelling the playing field for legal professionals across Nigeria. By removing barriers to access and fostering a culture of continuous learning, this initiative has the potential to elevate the legal profession and ultimately benefit the Nigerian public by promoting a more knowledgeable and competent Bar.

As the legal community eagerly awaits the launch of this groundbreaking repository, the NBA-ICLE and Olaniwun Ajayi LP have set a shining example of how strategic collaborations can drive progress and empower professionals with the tools they need to excel.
