LIST: Approved Faculties of Law in Nigeria Universities

The Council of Legal Education is the regulatory body for the
Nigerian Law School, which must be attended by persons willing to
practice law in Nigeria. It also determines the steps to be taken
by persons who have obtained a university degree in law from a foreign
institution and are willing to practice as lawyers in Nigeria.
The
Nigerian law school and the Council of Legal Education were established
in 1962, following the enactment of the Legal Education Act to ensure
the study of the Nigerian customary law by prospective members of the
bench.
