Centre, firm plan to raise global lawyers


The Centre for Law Business in partnership with Barbri Global; the world’s premier legal education body, has pledged to empower lawyers to work everywhere in the world through its programme, Barbri international legal qualification.

The Chief Executive Officer of CLB, Dapo Oyewumi, and the International development manager at Barbri Global, Monique Morrison, made the disclosure at a one-day seminar in Lagos with the theme “Africa International Lawyers Multi-Jurisdictional Qualification: UK and US.”

Oyewumi said that the programme was to prepare Nigerians to practise law abroad and allow them to have international legal practice, and to make them have multi-jurisdictional practice licences. He added that having a multi-jurisdictional practice license would help attract clients to the lawyer.

 “A lawyer that has multi-jurisdiction has to practise across jurisdictions and it will be more attractive than somebody that practises in one jurisdiction,” he said.

He stated that the programme would enable lawyers to work in the UK and not necessarily relocate, adding that the programme was for those who want to become solicitors.

“They can prepare documents, get involved in land transactions, and so on without appearing in superior court, they can appear in the tribunals, district court but they cannot go to the superior court. So what a UK solicitor can do, you can do,” Oyewumi said.

Also, Morrison noted that the Barbri global pedigree had over 55 years of expertise focusing on tech-driven preparation for lawyers with a global mindset, has 1,500 foreign lawyers yearly seeking dual qualification with Barbri, and 1.3 million alumni who are lawyers, judges, and law students.
