An Oath to Defend
I am the Founder of LAW ACCENT; a fast growing consultancy firm that teaches elementary principles of law to the public. I am also the founding partner of ATTORNEYS’ HAVEN (a Law Practice Firm). I started my career at FALANA & FALANA’S CHAMBERS where I had a successful stint which saw me rise through the ranks within a very short time to become the Deputy Head of Property Department, a position I held until my eventful resignation in December 2015 to focus more on spreading the knowledge of law to the public.
In the course of serving under Falana's Chambers, I embraced the view that “LAW is made for the public (and not for Lawyers), so every person must have a basic understanding of LAW as it applies to him/her”, it was upon that understanding that LAW ACCENT was initiated to spread the knowledge of Law to the public. Over the years, I have become extremely passionate about teaching Law to the public in a way that has never been done before in Nigeria; I coordinate training for grassroots people on their rights and duties under Nigerian Laws; and I also host business advisory training for business people.
I initiated a yearly series called PEOPLE’S PARLIAMENT in 2014 to bring LAW to the level of grassroots people. Through the People’s Parliament, many people have been made to understand their rights and duties under the Nigerian Laws, and they have also been trained on how to hold the government accountable for its policies.
I am the
author of the blog www.eyitayoogunyemi.blogspot.
I am committed to building a knowledge based Nigeria, and this commitment has inspired me to organize mentoring programs for Nigerian youths (tertiary institution students in particular) on the subject of discovering what to live for and how to go about it.
I look forward to ways I can be of assistance to people in their daily endeavours and my social media profiles are as follows:
