He said the partnership, which amounted to 97 per cent discount off one of its flagship products – LawPavilion Primsol, is the company’s way of showing empathy with Africa’s largest bar and the legal industry as a whole, on the recent chequered three-fold disruption – COVID-19, #EndSars and JUSUN Strike that assailed the legal industry and lawyers’ means of livelihood.

Shedding light on the nature of the partnership, Olugasa explained that the beneficiaries of this year’s partnership, just like last year, include legal practitioners between one to seven years post-call, who have paid their practicing fees and branch dues on or before March 31, 2021.

This category, he said, will be entitled to the NBA-LawPavilion professional leverage package for free.

He reiterated that the robust access that the partnership offers is the company’s way of demonstrating its readiness to work with the legal industry for a tech-driven rebound.

Olugasa appealed to all legal practitioners to take advantage of the package for professional leverage, as championed by the NBA, to avoid being left behind in the cutting edge 21st century legal practice.

He declared that as the Association strives to ensure all members are at par with the current trends in global development, each practitioner should endeavour to leverage on the opportunity to remain relevant in the scheme of practice.

While pointing out that the coupon can only be activated from August 23rd to October 6, 2021, Olugasa recalled that some of the beneficiaries from last year’s partnership didn’t cash in on the opportunity on time.


He, therefore, enjoined persons eligible for the partnership to visit or go to the NBA’s website to confirm their status and activate their accounts to take full advantage of the partnership before it times out.
