Nigerian Law School Recruitment 2017

This establishment was a necessity to solve the existing issues of providing practical training for aspiring Legal Practitioners in Nigeria and to provide a Nigerian legal education to foreign-trained lawyers. This is because, before establishment, legal practitioners in Nigeria had received the basic training in England and had been called to the English Bar.

In 1997, the Federal Government approved the Council’s proposal to establish three campuses of the Law School in Lagos, Kano and Enugu, and even more recently in 2009 approved the establishment of two new campuses in Yola, Adamawa State and Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
