The Nigerian Law School was established in Lagos under the Legal Education Act 1962 now Legal Education (Consolidation Etc) Act Cap. L10, Laws of the Federation, 2004. From 1962 up till December 1997 the Law School remained in Lagos. Following the Federal Government directive, the School was relocated to Bwari in Abuja in December 1997.
Nigerian Law School was founded on the principle to Educate and train graduates in vocational skills that would enable them function optimally as barristers and solicitors,to make the world a better place. For more than 57 years, we haven鈥檛 strayed from that vision.
