Law et al Legal Practitioners & Notaries is a Nigerian Law Firm that aims to provide pro bono Legal and Consultancy services to small businesses and start-ups create/established by Nigerian Youth (individuals between the age of 18 -24). The firm was created/formed in memory of Obiechina Iwugoh Akumazi (Esq), who passed on in January 2021. We need to make a meaningful contribution to society and use our knowledge and expertise to make a long-lasting impact on the lives of the less privileged by bridging the gap in access to rights, services and justice. The firm was created in March 2021 and has successfully sponsored the tuition of 2 Nigerian Law Schools in the 2021/2022 session. The firm was also able to provide 3 Nigerian school students with textbooks for the new academic year.
We provide the following free services to qualified entities.
Access to our free services will be provided according to strict criteria. Please contact the firm for more details.
The firm is run by a group of young lawyers who have kindly volunteered their time and expertise to be a part of this noble and wonderful cause. We will also be open to accepting applications from other young lawyers and professionals to ensure that we have enough staff strength to provide effective services. This is also a good avenue for young lawyers to fulfil their obligation of carrying out 20 hours or three days of legal services per individual lawyer per annum in like with the 2009 Pro Bono Declaration for members if the Nigerian Bar Association.
Whilst the primary aim of the firm is to provide free services, this will only be done according to a strict criterion which must be met by potential recipients of such grants. The firm will in turn carry out paid services in order to create revenue which will be used to fund these services.
