Nigerian Bar Association Section on Business Law, NBA-SBL and the Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC have set up a joint working committee to promote regular and constructive engagements to enhanced quality relationship between the two, SBL and CAC for the enhancement of business practice in Nigeria.
The Committee Co-chaired by Moyosore Onigbanjo, SAN and Adekunle Omowole of the CAC was inaugurated at the Head Office of the commission in Abuja during the week and the Joint Committee is set to hold its inaugural meeting on Thursday September 17 2015, at the CAC and stakeholders have been asked to forward a list of burning issues or concerns relative to the CAC’s operations for the Committee to tackle.
It would be recalled that the SBL Council in February this year, engaged the Registrar General and management of the CAC for possible collaborations that would improve the operations of the commission, develop business practices in Nigeria and enhance the country’s ‘doing business’ profile globally. The meeting which took place on Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at the CAC Head quarters in Abuja, focused on critical areas where SBL can collaborate with the CAC for prompt and quality services delivery to key stakeholders and members of the general public.
Meanwhile, the Section on Business Law is collaborating with the Commonwealth Lawyers Association, CLA and the Cyprus Bar Association for a workshop on Finance and Banking which takes place in Limassol, Cyprus from 19-20 May 2016.
The workshop, a continuing legal education programme organised by the Commonwealth Lawyers Association, is part of a series of small events aimed at bringing international expertise to commonwealth jurisdictions like Nigeria.
The Workshop is expected to cover a variety of topics such as the 4th EU Directive on money laundering, Virtual Currencies, Cybercrime, Commercial Dispute Resolution, Corporate Social Responsibility and a look at banking of the future in the Commonwealth and provide an opportunity to exchange information with professional from across the globe.
The CLA is a pan-Commonwealth organisation, which seeks to uphold the rule of law in the Commonwealth by encouraging exchange of ideas between legal professionals, academics and students, through projects and by driving improvements in legal education. It holds a number of short events throughout the year including the Commonwealth Law conference.
The SBL trainings and collaborations are part of the objectives of the current administration and Council of the SBL, to develop partnerships and capacity building programmes that will impact on its members who consist mainly of business and corporate commercial lawyers in Nigeria.
