The Idea of Fola Sasegbon Foundation was born out of the legacy and ideology of a legal icon in Nigeria Fola Sasegbon. His life’s footprint was envisioned in a justice system where her practitioners are fully committed to learning in order to be better equipped to deliver to both deliver and defend justice.
The Fola Sasegbon Foundation embodies the vision of this iconic role model in the legal practice and hence strive to bring to bear his legacy. In making this a reality we have focussed on 3 areas of need in the legal practice. First is the need to learn and research which informed the setting up of the Fola Sasegbon Memorial Library. A quite environment with over 1200 books and reading furniture where legal practitioners can read, learn and research.
The Second area of need that the Fola Sasegbon Foundation seeks to address is the need for collaboration and networking amongst legal practitioners. In doing this the Fola Sasegbon reading area is designed as mini office complex that can aid lawyers, judges and other legal practitioners both read and collaborate. The complex serves as a hub for all legal practitioners to collaborate, discuss, brainstorm and learn
The third area is a look at the next generation of lawyers and how we can best position the foundation as an Haven to mentoring. We achieve this by investing in informative newsletters, publications, journals, legal events and off course the 100% free legal library.
