DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
(Tip 262)
WHEN LAWYERS CAN PERSONALLY STAND BAIL FOR CLIENTS.

There is popular saying in Nigeria, that a lawyer cannot be surety and take a client on bail. Well, this is NOT true! There is no law that stops a lawyer from being a surety and taking a client (who is a suspect) on bail in any where in Nigeria. The Rules of Professional Conduct for Lawyers expressly prohibits lawyers from being sureties and taking their clients (who are accused persons) on bail in any court in Nigeria. The Rules purposely mentioned only courts and excluded detention centers including Police stations, Economic and Financial Crimes Commissions(EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), Department of State Services (DSS) and all other security agencies. Consequently, it is not a professional misconduct for a lawyer to be a surety and take his client who is a suspect on bail in any place but cannot do so for his clients who are accused persons in any court.

My authorities are Rules 37(1) and 57 of the Rules of Professional Conduct for Legal Practitioners, 2007.

DAILY LAW TIPS
by Onyekachi Umah,Esq.
(Tip 137)
“IT IS AN OFFENCE FOR A NON-LAWYER TO PREPARE A LAND OR TENANCY AGREEMENT IN NIGERIA”.

In Nigeria, only Lawyers are authorised to make, prepare and write land and tenancy agreements of any type for a fee. Hence, no other group, society, business, cyber cafe, person or profession is allowed to prepare land or tenancy agreements in Nigeria. It is an offence punishable with imprisonment and or fine for a non-lawyer to prepare a land agreement for a fee in Nigeria.

My authority; section 22 (1)(d) of Legal Practitioners Act.
