How can I join your organization?
Joining our organization is easy. Just click on the Sign Up form here.

What happens after signing up?
After signing up, we encourage you to edit your membership profile. This will enable us to obtain and store accurate and sufficient details about you. Thereafter, we can link you up with any of our Chapters nearest to you. With this, you will be informed of any meeting for members or upcoming event in your area that you may be interested in attending and participating in as a member.

Is membership only available online?
>No. But we require all prospective members to first sign up online and edit their profiles, before they are linked up with our office nearest to their location.

What are the requirements for membership?

The only basic requirements are as follows;

  1. A prospective member must not be less than 18 years old.
  2. Prospective members must be law-abiding citizens
  3. All prospective members must have good moral character

Do I have to pay money to become your member?
No. To join our organization is absolutely free. We do not charge any membership due whatsoever.
However, members may be required to buy some of our materials and publications for their own education and advancement.

Why doesn't your organization charge membership dues like others?
Our primary consideration is the economic situation in Nigeria, where a larger percentage of the population lives on less than $1 per day. Any demand for Membership dues may prove an additional burden, and be unaffordable for many people who otherwise would have benefited from joining and participation.

As a member, will I be entitled to all your materials and publications free of charge?
Some of our materials and publications are free for members while others are greatly discounted.

When are meetings held by members?
Dates and venues of meetings are posted on our website and also communicated personally in advance to our members.

But it is strongly recommended that you contact us first and allow us to formally recommend any one of our advisors to you. This will enable us monitor the level of services offered to you as well as ensure the competence of the legal practitioner so concerned. The above notwithstanding, we advise you to read about the limitation of our liability as contained in paragraph 21.0 of our terms and conditions.

Most importantly, we strongly recommend that you confirm with us first before discontinuing with your present legal representations or presenting us as your legal representatives.

Are there any conditions attached to your provisions of free legal services?
