The National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) is all set to conduct the compulsory Orientation program for its law graduates in preparation for the Nigerian Law School admission.
The above became necessary following the approval by the Nigerian Body of Benchers’ approval of law school admission for the NOUN law graduates in 2020 (read here)
The orientation program which was further officially communicated to the NOUN via a letter by the Secretary of CLE and Director of Administration titled “Application for Special Remedial Course for NOUN Graduates” would ensure the admission of the NOUN law graduates to the law school and their subsequent call to the Nigerian Bar.
Information gathered reveals that in preparation for the program which is scheduled to commence from Monday, March, 29, 2021, details of the 1,876 law graduates of the NOUN had been uploaded on CLE portal. Full list of the qualified NOUN Graduates can also be accessed through the NOUN Portal below
The above development would hopefully end the long-standing face-off between NOUN and the Council of Legal Education (CLE) over the non admission of graduate of the university to the law school since it graduated its first set of Law students in 2015.
