Why Finance Skills For Lawyers?

Speaking recently in an interactive session with a group of lawyers, prominent lawyer and a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Paul Usoro has this to say;
“Every lawyer needs to go beyond the primary legal knowledge and skills they have, to acquire relevant financial skills. This will help them significantly improve their legal practice, they have to build competencies in financial management to aid their professional performance.”


The Learned silk also added;
“A Law firm should be operated as a business concern. In the course of my practice over the years, I have come to understand the importance of financial literacy and it is commonplace that most Lawyers don’t have sound knowledge of finance, assets, and liabilities. This hampers practice in some ways. With a vibrant knowledge of finance, you’re able to improve your law firm management skills, manage your practice very well, and also offer advisory services on issues relating to finance to clients, where such is required.”

Finance skills for lawyers training that was organized by OACO professional services was a very interactive class that left participants hungry for more. Most of the basic accounting knowledge I had before coming today was better understood by the help of our facilitator. thanks to chief J K Gadzama and Everlaw foundation for making this happen.

Brilliant learning session, and very necessary for we lawyers, in a preliminary session like this, we would need a bit more hands-on approach in terms of material and interactivity may be using practical audio-visual platforms for learning.
