The staff development day (SDD) is one of the innovative ideas that makes Obra Legal to stand out. It is a monthly event in which lawyers affiliated to the Firm are given intense formation, having in mind that legal practice should be carried out wholistically. It is usually anchored by a resource person who is supposedly an expert in the particular topic that is to be discussed.
The interactive Session that take place during the SDD helps to nourish a culture of openness and communication within the Firm. Most importantly the knowledge of the fact that the Firm wants the best for its lawyers reassures both the senior and junior lawyers that nothing short of the best is expected of them in their practice.
Famous amongst the topics handled so far include:
- “Collegiality in the Law Office” which was anchored by Barr. Ikechukwu Onuoma, Esq
- “Personal and Corporate Performance Evaluation” which was anchored by Mr. Charles Ivenso
With the SDD, Obra Legal hopes to bring out the best potentials amongst its lawyers who could handle strategic positions should they absorb the intense formation they receive through the Staff Development Day.
