Essentials of Lawyering Skills in Africa

by Festus Emiri, Ernest Owusu-Dapaa, Ayuba O. Giwa

In twenty-two chapters, divided into six parts for convenience, the authors not only lay bare the “art of lawyering” but also provide invaluable nuggets of perfecting and excelling as a solicitor and advocate. There is little doubt that the contents of this book dramatically make a lawyer, especially the lawyer in Africa, to be more effective, more skilful and a proper lawyer useful to the client and society.
