FG urged to scrap Nigerian Law School

Sam Amadi, a lawyer and former Director-General of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, has urged the Federal Government to scrap the Nigerian Law School.

He made the call at the 2023 endowment launch for the ‘IgbaBoyi’, an Igbo apprenticeship scheme, by Igbo lawyers under the umbrella of Otu Oka-Iwu on Friday in Abuja.

He noted that the country needs to rethink its whole framework.

“So, I think that we need to rethink the whole framework of Nigeria. In my view, the law school is failing. It is no longer serving its purpose,” he said.

“The law school is designed to provide technical, practical education.

“So the question I ask is: what are they providing? My view is that purpose is best served at law firms.

“Many lawyers who go to law school do not practice.

“What is the law school providing for our young graduates?

“The law school is not rigorous, either academic or practical.

“So my view is, we must focus on universities to give robust academic training.”
