Africa’s leading Legal Technologies Solution Provider and Software Developers, LawPavilion has concluded plans to celebrate 120 Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs), who have been registered on its platform and users of LawPavilion Electronic Law Reports (LPELR) during the on-going NBA conference, which also coincides with the Company’s 10th commercial year anniversary.

Managing director of the firm, Mr. Ope Olugasa, said it is an unprecedented recognition of intellectual sagacity and immense contribution to the development of law and justice in Nigeria.

He stated that “Words in Gold for Senior Advocates of Nigeria” is recognition of the immense contributions of the 120 learned silks, which became obvious during the development of the Company’s latest ambitious Legal Analytics product, the LawPavilion Prime, Africa’s First legal Analytics Software.

He said because data was being mined from available reported cases from the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal in the creation and development of LawPavilion Prime, many of the identified Learned Senior Advocates of Nigeria had appeared in many of those cases either as Lead Counsel or part of the representation team and their contributions have been instrumental to the development of Nigerian law and jurisprudence.

His words: “As part of the planned celebration, each of the identified tech-adept Senior Advocates will be handed a compilation of his/her submissions in all the cases in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal in which such SAN had appeared. In the immediate, it serves as an invaluable memorabilia and portable testament of the legacy of such Learned Senior Advocate.

“On the other hand, it will also serve as a first reference tool for future cases regarding similar cases to be handled by such SAN or others.

Furthermore, it becomes a veritable tool in the compilation of books, essays or biographies about the life and practice of such Learned Senior Advocate of Nigeria.

According to Olugasa, the LawPavilion brand has been servicing the legal services industry for the past 10 years and 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.

He revealed that as part of its commitment to the industry, it will be unveiling commercially Africa’s First Legal Analytics software – The LawPavilion Prime, which is the result of more than 4 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, the innovations provided by LawPavilion 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,” he stated.
