Council of Legal Education Disclaimer on the Proposed Kevin Nwosu Pre-Law School Conference
Posted: 11/Jul/2015

The attention of the council of Legal Education and Nigerian Law School has been drawn to an advertorial in Thisday Newspaper of July 2, 2015 by one kevin Nwosu Law Institute, inviting final year law students, foreign graduates in Bar Part 1 and Law lecturers etc to a "Pre Law School Conference/Workshop". The Conference/workshop purportedly aims to provide law students with an opportunity for personal improvement in study skills, strategies and techniques as a preparation for the programme at the Nigrian Law School.

The general public and particularly the target group ie final year law students, Bar Part 1 students etc are hereby informed that the council of legal education and the Nigerian law school do not consider a body such as the kevin Nwosu law institute competent to determine the requirements and expectations in prospective students of the Nigerian Law School

The promoter of the institute, Mr Kevin Nwosu, although a former staff  of the Nigerian Law School has no mandate or approval of the school to conduct the conference and the council of Legal Education and the Nigerian law school have no input or connection whatsoever in the programmes of the institute, including its proposed "Pre-Law School Conference/Workshop"

Furthermore, the council of legal education and Nigerian Law school do not consider the training proposed by the institute as of benefit to students who are graduates of law, proceeding to the Nigerian law school for their Bar vocational training. Consequently, prospective students of Nigerian Law school as well as thier parents and guardians are advised to note the position of the council of legal education and Nigerian law school and be well guided please.

From experience, the orientation, attitude and study skills of law graduates coming to the Nigerian law school are further improved and structured by the curriculum at the school.

Indeed, it sit he law faculties and the Nigerian law school that are mandated by law and are truly equipped to give students the right focus to law studies.

The curriculum of the Nigerian law school as approved by the council of legal education is sufficient for the training of lawyers for practice at home and in other jurisdictions
