Call to bar is a legal term of art in most common law jurisdictionswhere an individual is sworn or entered into a law society or state bar or court and thereafter licensed to practise law in that jurisdiction.
In Nigeria, the ceremony is organised by the Nigerian Law School.
It is a significant ceremony in the annals of Nigeria’s Legal profession, being the only means to admit new lawyers to practice.
