Firm Seeks To Recruit A Lawyer For 25k Monthly Salary by jswitch(m): 2:06pm On Jun 02, 2020
Almond solicitors, a law firm, is seeking to recruit a lawyer who will be paid N25,000 monthly salary.
This pay is below the N30,000 minimum wage signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari on April 18, 2020.
It is also lower when compared to the N33,000 monthly allowance received by members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
The company, which described itself as “an excellence driven firm with a demonstrated history of working in the legal services industry” placed the advert on its Linkedin account , on Monday.
It said the ideal candidate should reside in either Ogudu, Ojota, Gbagada or Ikeja areas of the state — places where accommodation is expensive and cost of transportation is high.
“We are looking to recruit a lawyer with 1-3 years experience. Being a modest firm, The salary will be NGN25,000 for a start. This will be upgraded as clientelle base expands,” the post read.
“The ideal candidate should be should be living in Ogudu/Ojota/ Gbagada/lkeja axis and will be tasked with attending client meetings, research and organizing training programs.
“The Candidate will also be working remotely from home. There is room for growth and exposure and the role is rewarding in the medium to long term. Interested candidates should send cvs to
almondsolicitors@gmail.com on or before June 12, 2020.”
In reaction, some LinkedIn users expressed shock over the amount to be paid as salary.
The users described it as demeaning for a member of the legal profession and for a graduate who spent five years at the university and another one year at the Nigeria Law School.
“This is just disgraceful and despicable to the hallowed profession,” Oluwatosin Ayinde, a user, wrote.
Chukwudi Ekene Charles, a lawyer, also wrote “You are not even ashamed to advertise this kind of job?”
Eugene Okundaye, another LinkedIn user, compared the salary to what is received by house helps and gate men.
“Haha, 25k… even house helps and gatemen earned more than that… I seriously think it’s a typo error,” he wrote.
Ifeanyi Ugwanyi, an associate at Perchatone & Graeys, displayed sarcasm saying the firm is probably seeking to recruit an undergraduate intern and not a lawyer.
“There’s a typo somewhere. Either in the figures or they are in search of an undergraduate intern. Can’t be a lawyer!” he wrote.
Joseph Nembe, who described himself as a dispute resolution attorney, said: “25k? And the ideal candidate should be living in Ikeja? What a suck joke!”
“NGN25,000 That’s like $60 a month And you’re shamelessly advertising this on LinkedIn? I’m embarrassed for your “law firm” and for your Bar,” Gideon Christian, another user said.
Khadija Yusuf, a LinkedIn user, said “the firm should be reported to the federal government for offering a salary below the minimum wage”.

I believe that no Nigerian should be paid below the new minimum wage,not even cleaners or street sweepers. If you own a business and you think you can't pay minimum wage,then kindly close your business or employ your children only. Nigerians need to stop being wicked.
After NYSC years ago I worked in a private secondary school. Teaching 3 subjects,Ss1 to 3, I love the job but the peanut made it uninspiring. Could you believe that the school can pay the salary of all teaching staff with 2 Jss 1 classes,yes we did the maths.
What I'm trying to say is,some employers are just too greedy,it's not that they can't pay more,it's the fact that they want to make as much money as possible,they won't even mind their workers working for free. Greedy wicked lots.

THESE ARE ALL ONE-SIDED OPINIONS AND UNTRUE!


Many Nigerians think all lawyers are Barristers (lawyers that appear before a law court to represent clients). This is a VERY wrong view.

We also have another arm of the legal practice - called SOLICITORS. They would normally not appear in courts and even though many lawyers can combine being a Barrister and Solicitor - lawyers practicing as Solicitors earn quite a good sum of money. So you will normally have:

1. Real Estate lawyers (Land/Properties related)
2. Intellectual Property lawyers (Trademarks/Copyright related)
3. Company Secretaries/Legal officers (Working as an employee in companies - e.g MTN, Chevron,NNPC)
4. Banking and Finance Lawyers (Assisting with documentation of International financing transactions)
6. Energy Lawyers (Oil and gas and Power related)
7. Projects and Infrastructure Lawyers (Majoring in big ticket constructions Etc.)
8. And other General corporate and commercial practice.


The truth is - Just like every career path - Law is very competitive. But if you have any law student as a brother/sister - advise them on the above - so they don’t end up being a charge and bail lawyer.

The Nigerian Bar Association should do something about it.

They are reducing the prestige and honour of this Noble Profession.




But let me give you a personal advice,

1) Start Estate Management course e.g with Nigerian Institute of Estate Surveyorsb and make sure you become a charterred Estate Surveyor & Valuer

2) Relocate from Benin City to Kwara or Osun State where the Legal Practice is not as saturated as that of Benin

3) Start practice Property Law +Estate Survey & Valuation.

4) Street Credibility: Join a political party, Join Elites Club, be active in church, Community Development Associations and NBA , do probuno cases etc


5) Thank me later
