Law Pavilion to Honour 120 SANs

Legal technologies solution provider and software developers Law Pavilion will celebrate 120 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs), during the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) conference, which coincides with the  firm’s 10th anniversary.

The SANs are registered on the Pavilion’s platform and use electronic Law Reports.

The senior lawyers are to be honoured in recognition of their intellectual foresightedness and immense  contribution to the development of law and justice in  Nigeria,

Its Managing Director, Mr. Ope Olugasa, stated that the ceremony tagged: “Words in Gold for Senior Advocates of Nigeria”, is in recognition of the 120 Learned Silks’ contribution, which became obvious during the development of its product, Law Pavilion Prime – Africa’s first Legal Analytics Software.

He said because data was being  mined from available reported cases from the Supreme Court  and Court of Appeal in the creation and development of Law Pavilion Prime, most of the identified  Learned Senior Advocates of Nigeria had appeared in many of these cases, either as Lead Counsel or part of the representation team.

He said their contributions have been instrumental to the development of Nigerian law and  jurisprudence.

As  part of the planned celebration, he said each of the identified  tech-adept Senior  Advocates of Nigeria, will be handed a compilation of his/her submissions in all the cases in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal in which such Learned Senior Advocate has appeared as an  invaluable memorabilia

and portable testament of the legacy of such Learned Senior Advocate.

He said the compiled law reports will also serve as a first reference tool for future cases  regarding similar cases to be handled by such learned silks and others and a veritable tool in the compilation of books, essays or biographies about their  life and practice.

Olugasa remarked that the Law Pavilion brand has been servicing the legal services industry for the past ten years and that the company is using the  opportunity of the 2017 NBA-AGC, to celebrate with its teeming subscribers and appreciate their patronage and loyalty for the past 10 years.

He stated that the company would not rest on its oars of being innovative and  blazing a trail for other service providers to follow in the legal services  industry and Nigeria in general.

As part of its commitment to the industry, he disclosed that the company will be unveiling commercially,  Africa’s First Legal Analytics software – The Law Pavilion Prime,  which is the result of more than four years of intense research and development, which involved more than 150 lawyers and software developers.

For an industry that has been portrayed as being slow to adopt  technology, he said the innovations provided by Law Pavilion have changed that  narrative and shown that  with tailor-made solutions, legal practitioners in Nigeria are able to compete and rub shoulders with their contemporaries from advanced  jurisdictions, without hindrance.
