Recently, Future Lawyer Series called for applications from interested and qualified young lawyers across Nigeria for sponsorship to the Fintech Foundation Course organized by the Nigerian Stock Exchange Academy in Lagos.
The sponsorship which is part of the continuing commitment of Future Lawyer Series towards the capacity building and professional development of young lawyers and law students is expected to contribute towards expanding the frontiers of law practice by exposing the participating lawyers (who all have between 1 to 4 years post call experience) to in-depth knowledge of the intersection between law, technology, banking and financial services.
At the end of the application period, over 200 strong and very competitive applications were received by the evaluation committee and the following 20 applicants from across various branches of the NBA were shortlisted:

About Future Lawyer Series
The Future Lawyer Series is an initiative of Desmond Ogba, a partner at Templars, and it is designed to deal with issues that have become of increasing concern to prospective and young lawyers. Issues of employability, career direction, specialisation, personal development, commercial awareness, networking, relationship building, making informed decisions on career paths including branching out of law, mentoring and handling professional mistakes and setbacks, are constantly on the front burner of the affairs of prospective and young lawyers. The Future Lawyer Series was therefore birthed to provide a platform for high achieving, respectable, inspiring and experienced lawyers to educate prospective and young lawyers on these issues and also provide personalised professional guidance.
