Lawquest Foundation (LQF) is a not-for profit organization established for the pursuit of the following aims and objectives:
Through our Continuing legal education scholarship scheme (CLESS) LQF promotes continuing legal education for Lawyers nationwide by providing different forms of scholarships for lawyers to attend workshops, seminars, and conferences organized by Lawquest Training Company Limited and other organizations.
Lawquest Foundation promotes training and employment of young lawyers by providing scholarships to these young lawyers to participate in the young Lawyers Training & Employment programme organized by Lawquest training limited. Under the young Lawyers Training and Employment programme, selected applicants undergo four days practical training workshop as well as a six months pupilage in selected Law Firms after which they are recommended for job placement.
LQF supports this programme by sponsoring the 4 days workshop as well as paying monthly transport allowance to each of the beneficiaries.
Citizen’s appreciation of their rights, duties and obligations to the nation and general applicable laws of the land will further promote the rule of law, which is an inevitable ingredient for the growth of democracy in our part of the world.
It is our belief that acquisition of basic Legal knowledge by citizens would be the basis for economic and social development which in turn creates conditions that are conducive for improved social justice, increased trade and investments which invariably would lead to economic empowerment of the citizens, and ultimately will give rise to a peaceful and more secured country.
In collaboration with Lawquest Training and Lawquest Publishing Company Limited, LQF provides access to legal education to the general public through the sponsorship of the following programme and publication:
BLE series provides basic legal education by way of symposiums, legal clinics, seminars and workshops to cooperative societies, religious group, the police force and other relevant law enforcement agencies.

This is a Legal companion for everybody’s use. Published online by Lawquest Publishing. It aims at providing answers to silent basic legal questions covering all facets of human endeavours. LQF sponsors subscription to the publication for all members of the public.
Using our network of Lawyers (pro-bono partners), LQF promotes Legal Aid & Access to justice by offering free legal services to less privileged Nigerians who otherwise may not be able to engage the services of Lawyers.
It is a known fact that small businesses are vital for the success of any economy and the youth are the backbone to the economic growth and survival of any nation.
