The National Universities Commission (NUC) has suspended admissions into the law degree programme of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN).
According to the Executive Secretary of the NUC, Prof. Julius Okojie, the moratorium would be in place pending the resolution of issues with the Council on Legal Education (CLE).
It would be recalled that the CLE has persistently disallowed NOUN’s law graduates from being admitted into the Nigerian Law School.
The council has argued that the teaching and study of law was clinical and cannot be done by correspondence.
“This matter is being addressed because it is between us, CLE and the university.
“What we have done in the interim is stop new intake into that programme so that they do not have a backlog; we are addressing the issue.
“I must say that the law programme in National Open University (NOUN) was approved by the NUC; it is our responsibility.
“When CLE came up with the idea of no part time law, NOUN did not consider law a part time programme by their mode; so they did not stop the programme.’’
According to him, NOUN’s law programme is not conceived as part time as there is no need studying if one will not attend law school.
He urged CLE to admit NOUN’s law graduates and give the institution its quota in terms of how many students they could admit. (NAN)
