Nigerian Lawyers Directory and Cheap Website Design for Lawyers and Law Firms & other Businesses

Welcome to the Nigerian Lawyers Directory of Lawyers and Law Firms in the Federal Republic of Nigeria!

Nigerian Lawyers Directory

This is a unique professional legal directory of lawyers and law firms in the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Professional lawyers (legal practitioners) in Nigeria are members of the legal profession (and Nigerian Bar Association) who have been called to the Nigerian Bar as Barristers and Solicitors of the Supreme Court of Nigeria. Only Law graduates from Law Faculties of universities recognised and accredited by the Council of Legal Education are qualified for admission into the Nigerian Law School for purposes of the mandatory professional legal practice postgraduate course. Upon success in the Nigerian Bar Final Examination, graduates of the Nigerian Law School are then called to the Nigerian Bar as Barristers and Solicitors of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and are thereby licensed to practise law in Nigeria.

Consequently, when you submit your entry for listing as a lawyer or a law firm in this legal Directory, that singular act constitutes a claim and guarantee by you that you are licensed to practise law in Nigeria and you thereby indemnify Nigerian Lawyers Directory absolutely against any effect or consequence whatsoever of your faulty claim or impersonation of a Nigerian legal practitioner.

  • appropriate means of identification: international passport, drivers’ license or Nigerian national identity card);
  • proof of payment of the Nigerian Bar Association annual practice fee up-to-date;
