A company or organization without laws is like a lecture room without a lecturer – anything and everything goes. But it is worse for a country as it will lead to chaos, crime, riot, instability. These will lead it to be a failed state. That is why one of the best institutions a country should have is its Law institution or Law school.
The Nigerian Law School is the educational institution set up by the Nigerian government to train and produce well qualified legal practitioners in Nigeria. One has to be registered in a Law School and graduate in order to become a lawyer or a legal practitioner.
For clarity, the Nigerian Law School is not meant for all Law graduates from a Nigerian university. It is only meant for those Law graduates with the intention of practicing Law as a profession. Below is a list of the different Law School campuses in Nigeria, their locations and dates of establishment.
