Cheering news stemming out of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN),has it that Law graduates of NOUN may soon be admitted into the Nigerian Law School.
This was made know to schoolwatch.com.ng grapevine by the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Ado Tenebe during the Convocation ceremony of the institution.
According to him efforts are at an advanced stage to ensure that this comes to fruition.
“We are at an advanced stage, because eminent Nigerians like the former President Olusegun Obasanjo, who is also one of our students, and respected citizen of this country have taken it upon themselves to help us contact the authorities to allow our graduates go through the Law School and participate in the bar.” He emphasized.
It would be recalled that C. U. Mmuozoba of the Nigerian Law School, Enugu Campus, assured the students of his full backing to ensure that every law graduate of the open varsity who successfully completes his programme is admitted to Law School.
Mmuosoba, who spoke on ‘Legal Education In New Age’, on the occasion, however, explained that, “It is not that the Nigerian Law School is averse to admitting open varsity graduates. What the lingering problem is, is about relevant stakeholders not having been able to put the enabling structures in place at the open varsities.
“It is unfair for Open University to take your money, make you spend years gaining legal knowledge and say they you cannot go to Law School. I am fully behind you, but you have to be civil in your agitation. Noviolence”, he told the law students.
