List of 72 Nigerian Lawyers Elevated To SAN

The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee, (LPPC), has elevated 72 lawyers to the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

The LPPC in a statement issued by the Acting Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court, Hajo Sarki Bello, said it took the decision at its 149th plenary session that held on October 21.

The committee disclosed that the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Tanko Muhammad would swear-in the new SANs on December 8, at the Supreme Court premises.

The committee said it notified prospective applicants that application for the 2022 exercise would not commence until a date to be announced in January.

According to the LPPC, a sub-committee has been set to review the 2018 guidelines for the award of SAN effective from the 2034 application year.

Successful lawyers who made the 2021 list include the Executive Secretary of the National Human Rights Commission, Mr Tony Ojukwu, a former Secretary General of the Nigerian Bar Association, (NBA),  Mr Emeka Obegolu, and seven Professors drawn from the academics.
