Professional Misconduct: Kunle Kalejaiye to retain SAN title

The supreme court has set aside the decision of the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) which disbarred Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Kunle Kalejaiye for engaging in professional misconduct.

Kalejaye was once a lawyer to the PDP and former governor of Osun state, Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

He was found by the LPDC to have engaged in conduct unbecoming of a legal practitioner.

In a unanimous judgement, a 5-man panel of the supreme court upheld Kalejaye’s appeal, on the ground that the trial procedure was flawed.
