Without sounding immodest in this auspicious event, you all will agree that the Nigerian Law School has had phenomenal growth and development, suffice this to say that from inception, the Nigerian Law School has been solely responsible for the vocational and practical training of University law graduates for admission to the Nigerian Bar. From its humble beginning in 1963 with 8 students at its one block Campus at 213A, Igbosere Road, Lagos, the Nigerian Law School has grown to a six-Campus Institution spread across the country with a yearly intake of well over 6,000 (six thousand) students as stated above.
The School has also contributed to the training of the legal manpower for our sister African countries like the Republic of the Gambia, the Republic of Sierra Leone, and the Republic of Cameroun. A number of countries from East and West Africa have visited the Law schools to solicit information and assistance on the establishment and development of the Law schools in their various countries. Just recently the Nigerian Law School received a high-powered delegation from the Law Development Centre, Uganda, who was in Nigeria on benchmarking and working visit to the Nigerian Law School. The products of the School have a commanding presence in another sphere of the public and private sectors such as the Military, Police, Customs, Immigration, the Oil and Gas sector, Banking and Finance, Insurance and the Corporate world in general, Professors/Lecturers in the Universities and other tertiary institutions.
Some of these products have achieved the profound feat of getting to the top of their career nationally and internationally. In fact, many serving Governors in Nigeria are products of the Nigerian Law
School, and many more past governors and a Head of State, Chief Ernest Shonekan, GCFR.
