Full List: Dignitaries, Academics Make List of Newly Awarded 72 SANs

The committee saddled with the responsibility of conferring senior advocate of Nigeria, SAN, on Nigerian legal Practitioners, legal practitioners privilege committee (LPPC) at its 149th plenary session on Thursday announced the names of 72 lawyers for the coveted rank.

Anthony Ojukwu, executive secretary of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), is one of 72 lawyers named by the committee.

A total of 130 lawyers were shortlisted for the rank in September — including 95 advocate applicants and 35 academic applicants. Of the 130 candidates shortlisted, 72 were successful, while 58 did not make the cut.

Other notable persons that were elevated to SAN are Ikeazor Akaraiwe, former vice-president of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), as well as Emeka Obegolu, former NBA general secretary.

The LPPC, in a statement on Thursday, said the swearing-in ceremony of the 72 legal practitioners by the chief justice of Nigeria (CJN)is scheduled for December 8, 2021 at the supreme court premises in Abuja.

The LPPC also reminded the public that it had set up a sub-committee to review the 2018 guidelines for the award of the rank, effective from the 2023 application year.
