Nigeria: Yola Campus of Law School to Take Off Jan

Yola — All is now set for the full commencement of academic session at the Yola campus of the Nigeria Law School (NLS) by January next year with 200 students, Director General of the school Dr. Tahir Mamman has said.

Speaking to Daily Trust in Yola yesterday, the DG said registration of new students will commence in January, saying the school will pursue vigorously curriculum development aimed at bringing the school's curriculum in line with global standards and in improving facilities.

While commending the Adamawa State government for its commitment to the speedy completion of the campus, he said the establishment of the school became necessary because of the need to have a law school which will cure the deficiency in the training of Nigerians who obtained law qualifications in law abroad and to provide the much needed practical training to those aspiring to become legal practitioners in Nigeria.

Mamman said the male and female hostels as well as lecture theatre in the campus had been completed and furnished. He expressed the hope that the "education and qualification obtained in the law school will open the doors for a more fulfilling life for the new lawyers".

He assured that the school would establish a section to supervise quality assurance and uniformity in programme delivery across its campuses and urged the Federal Government to support the school by way of sufficient funding.
