National Assembly Passes Bill To Increase Number Of Law School Campuses



The Senate passed a bill on Tuesday that aims to expand the number of law school campuses throughout the country.

The bill was passed when the Senate Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, and Legal Matters adopted a report.

Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, the Chairman of the Committee, said the bill wants seven more law school campuses in Kabba, Kogi State, Jos, Plateau State, and Maiduguri, Borno State, when presenting the findings at Tuesday’s plenary session.

Ilawe, Ekiti State, Okija, Anambra State, Orogun, Delta State, and Arugungu, Kebbi State are among the others.

Senator Bamidele stated that, given the exponential growth in the number of law graduates from Nigerian and international colleges, as well as the long-standing backlog, this legislative intervention is not only appropriate and opportune, but also crucial.
