A bill that seeks to increase the number of Nigerian Law School campuses in the country from six to twelve on Wednesday passed for the second reading at the Upper Chamber.
The bill titled, “A bill for an Act to amend the Legal Education (Consolidation etc.) Act by establishing the campuses for the Nigerian Law School, and for other related matters” was sponsored by Senator Smart Adeyemi.
Adeyemi who represents Kogi West in the upper chamber in his lead debate said it has become necessary to establish six additional Law School campuses to cater for yearly increases of law graduates seeking admission into the six available law school campuses in the country.
“According to the admission quota of Law Students allocated to all these Universities per year, 5640 students are admitted yearly into their Law Faculties,” he said.
