A Bill seeking to increase the number of the Nigerian Law School campuses in the country from six to twelve has scaled second reading at the Senate.
The Senate says the Federal Government should establish at least six more Law schools to fit in the six geopolitical zones of the country.
Explaining where the six proposed additional campuses will be cited, Senator Adeyemi said that the one of North Central will be Kabba Law School campus, Kogi; North East, Maiduguri Law School Campus, Borno; North West, Argungu Law School Campus, Kebbi.
Others are South East, Okija Law School Campus, Anambra; South-South, Orogun Law School Campus, Delta and South West, Ifaki Law School Campus, Ekiti.
There are presently 6 Law Schools in Nigeria; Lagos law school campus, Abuja law school campus, Enugu law school campus, Bayelsa law school campus, Kano law school campus and Yola law school campus.
From 1962 up till December 1997, the Law School remained in Lagos. Following the Federal Government directive, the School was relocated to Bwari in Abuja in December 1997.
