Faqs

YPLaw is a mentoring platform for young law professionals who must be graduates and must be between the ages of 19 and 30. Previously, the event was held as YPLAGOS and YPCALABAR. Now, it’s being convened online due to the ongoing pandemic. We have run YPONLINE (June 2020), YPFilm&Tv (November 2020, October 2021), YPLaw ( May 2021), YPAfrica (June 2021), YfPonline (March 2021, March 2022)

Unfortunately, you can’t. However, we will try and match you with a mentor that is close to your expressed interest. Plus please note that our selected mentors are leaders who have diverse experience that will be of benefit to you in a lot of ways than it may appear.

It’s N1,500 per person. Your registration is confirmed after you make a payment.

It will run from 9.30am to 12.30pm noon.
