Lawyers Caught Writing Exams For Students In Nigerian Law School


In what will come across as a really surprising revelation, lawyers have been caught taking exams for law students.


A new revelation has shown that some lawyers have been caught writing examination for students in the Nigerian Law School.

The revelation was made by Prof. Olanrewaju Onadeko, Director-General, Nigerian Law School, on Thursday.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Onadeko, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), disclosed this when he presented the school`s report to the annual general meeting of the Nigerian Bar Association in Port Harcourt.

Onadeko, who did not state the number of affected lawyers, said the matter had been reported to the NBA.

He urged the association to take action against such lawyers to save legal education in the country.

Mr Rotimi Jacob, SAN, charged the NBA to address the issue raised by the director-general of the law school.

He said those found guilty should be disciplined after due process had been followed to determine their cases.

Jacob said the issue was serious because of its implications on the future of legal education in the country.

The outgoing President of NBA, Mr Augustine Alegeh, said the association had not received report of such incident in the past two years.

He, however, said that the NBA had a committee to handle the matter on receipt of the report.
