The Faculty of Law University of Ilorin(UNILORIN) has been rated the best in the country following an assessment from The Council of Legal Education. This assessment is based on the performance of its student in the 2014 bar final examinations.
Reacting to the news, the vice chancellor of the University Prof. Abdul Ganiyu Ambali, described the feat as monumental, calling for a similar rating across other faculties.
The Dean of the Faculty Dr. I. A. Yusuf said “There is a collective sense of fulfillment over the achievement” describing it as “a vindication of the dedication of the members of staff and students of the faculty and their common and collective determination to uphold the vision of the university to become a centre of excellence. This success would not have been possible without the continuous support and attention our faculty always receives from the university management”.
The other universities that made it into the top five categories are the University of Lagos(2nd), the University of Ibadan(3rd), the University of Nigeria, Nsukka,(4th) and the University of Uyo/Adekunle Ajasin University(5th).
The report noted that only the University of Ilorin and Lagos have consistently made it into the top five in the last three years.
The ad-hoc committee of the council was comprised of several distinguished legal minds in the country such as Mrs M. M. Stanley-Idum, the Deputy Director (Academic) Nigerian Law School, Prof. E. S. Olarinde, Provost, College of Law Afe Babalola University and Mr. Ade Ipaye, Lagos State Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice who presided over the committee.
