The Chief Justice of Nigeria, CJN, Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, will swear in fifty eight new Senior Advocates of Nigeria on Monday, November 27, 2023, as part of the programmes lined up to formally herald the 2023/2024 legal year of the court.

No fewer than one hundred and fourteen applications were received by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee, LPPC, for the award of the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria in 2023.

The number was reduced to sixty nine after a series of screenings which included the Advocates 1st and 2nd Filtration Stages, Academic Pre-qualification, Academic 2nd Filtration Exercise, the Independent Appeals Hearing, and Chambers Inspection Exercises among others.

However, the LPPC conferred the title on fifty eight successful candidates, out of which fifty seven are advocates while one is an academic.

In a statement by the Supreme Court’s Director of Information, Festus Akande, the swearing-in will be heard at the main Courtroom of the Supreme Court.
