Tobenna Erojikwe, NBA-ICLE, Responds to Lawyers’ Concerns, Secures Free AI Training for Lawyers Aged Over 35 Years Old

The Nigerian Bar Association’s Institute of Continuing Legal Education (NBA-ICLE), led by Tobenna Erojikwe, has responded to concerns raised by lawyers by securing a new training opportunity for those aged 35 and above through its partnership with ALX and the Mastercard Foundation.

In late February, the NBA-ICLE announced a strategic alliance with ALX and the Mastercard Foundation to provide artificial intelligence (AI) and technology training for Nigerian lawyers. The initial phase offered a 6-week course for lawyers aged 34 and under, with each participant getting free training for a course that they ordinarily would have been charged $200 for.

However, the age restriction drew complaints from many lawyers who were ineligible but eager to take part in the AI and tech training. Demonstrating a listening approach, Erojikwe and the NBA-ICLE engaged with ALX to find an accommodation for the lawyers excluded due to the age criteria.

Their efforts paid off, as ALX has now agreed to facilitate a free 2-day training course specifically designed for lawyers over the age of 35. The training sessions will be held on Saturday, April 27th, from 12–2 p.m. and Sunday, April 28th, from 3-5 p.m.

Erojikwe, Chairman of the NBA-ICLE Board, expressed his commitment to addressing members’ concerns. “We are pleased that ALX has agreed to offer this specialised course to ensure no lawyer misses out on gaining valuable AI and technology skills,” he stated.

Lawyers interested in attending the free 2-day training can register by visiting Further details are also available on the attached flyer circulated by the NBA-ICLE.

This expanded training initiative underscores the NBA-ICLE’s responsiveness to its members’ needs and its commitment to empowering legal professionals with cutting-edge knowledge and equipping them to navigate an increasingly tech-driven profession seamlessly.
