Kenna Partners, a multi-service law firm headquartered in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial nerve center with offices in other strategic regions across the Country is celebrating its 25th anniversary. In commemoration of this silver jubilee, a number of events have been lined up including a colloquium organized by the firm with the theme; “Footprints in Law & Society: Towards a paradigm shift” scheduled to hold on Friday, November 23, 2018 at Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Distinguished members of the bench, legal luminaries and consummate professionals across different fields, have been empaneled to discuss the evolution of law and legal practice and its impact on the society at the colloquium. This is a significant event for the firm to mark its growth and achievements over the years, and to celebrate its people and culture of excellence in the practice of law. We believe it will be an engaging and intellectually stimulating event.
At the occasion, the firm will also be unveiling a book titled Brief Insights: a Selection of Milestone Cases, which chronicles some notable decisions of the Nigerian Courts. The book is a careful selection of cases which celebrate matters brought by litigants before the Courts, the persuasive arguments of lawyers and the decisions that have enriched legal practice and modern legal history in recent times. The milestone cases selected and discussed, touch on the practice and procedure of the Courts, company law, real estate, fundamental human rights, election petition, oil and gas, maritime amongst others. The book is another contribution to legal knowledge and practice in Nigeria by the law firm of Kenna Partners
Law continues to be an instrument of social engineering and as the law evolves, there is a need for lawyers, judges and the entire legal system to adopt changes in the approach to addressing challenges in the society.
As the theme reads, the Lecture to be delivered by the Honourable Justice Amina Adamu Augie, Justice of the Supreme Court, under the distinguished chairmanship of the first female Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Chief ‘Folake Solanke SAN will discuss how best to handle a transition of the legal profession from one which still bears strong vestiges of stages of its development through history whilst preserving our cherished traditions at the Bar as the profession must evolve to meet the emerging realities of a dynamic and interconnected modern world. A carefully selected panel comprising former NBA President, Chief Wole Olanipekun, SAN, Mr. Damian Dodo SAN and Mr. Odein Ajumogobia, SAN would be discussing the theme.
