NBA-SPIDEL annual conferences are increasingly becoming a reference point for very lively and intellectually rewarding conferences.

According to NBA-SPIDEL Chairman, Dr. Monday Ubani, “This year’s conference is designed to outstrip our last conferences in Aba and Ibadan both in the repertoire of topical issues on public interest and development law, ambience, networking, sight-seeing and social activities. It is designed to be a most engaging and entertaining conference ever held by SPIDEL. The Conference Planning Committee (CPC) ably led by three-term Lagos State Commissioner, Dr. Muiz Banire SAN has been extremely impressive. I do not wish that any lawyer should miss this year’s conference for any reason.”
