Law School: Open University Graduates to Know Fate October 4

 Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, presided over by Justice Hilary Oshomah has set October 4, 2017 to rule on the suit filed by some law graduates of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).

Joined in the suit are the Council for Legal Education, National Universities Commission, the Attorney-General of the Federation and the university.

It would be recalled that the plaintiffs went to court following their non-admission to the Nigerian Law School.

Responding, Counsel to Council for Legal Education, Mark Agwu urged the court to strike out the case during hearing in Port Harcourt last week.

According to Agwu “The certificate from NOUN Law Faculty is not enough to give the graduates admission into the Law school.’’

Contrastingly, Counsel to the plaintiffs, Professor Abiodun Amuda-Kannike, urged the court to deliver judgment in favour of the over 1,000 law graduates.

It would also be recalled that Council for Legal Education had issued a public notice in 2015 against NOUN’s admission of its first set of law students in 2004, who later graduated in 2013.
