The Nigerian Lawyers Association (NLA) was incorporated in 1999 as a not-for-profit, non-partisan association of attorneys and counselors-at-law. While most members are of Nigerian descent, Nigerian citizenship is not a requirement for membership.
NLA represents the interests of attorneys of Nigerian descent both in the United States and all over the world. It advances the professional needs of its growing members and provides leadership and advocacy for the legal needs and interests of the Nigerian community in the United States and around the world.
NLA’s principal objectives are to cultivate the science of jurisprudence, facilitate and advance the fair and equitable administration of justice, serve the needs of the members of the Nigerian legal community, as well as the Nigerian community as a whole, in their understanding and access to the law and to educate and assist such persons in their day to day dealings with the law.
