Admission into law programme of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) has been suspended.
This was disclosed by , Prof. Julius Okojie, NUC’s Executive Secretary.
According to him, this suspension will be in place pending the resolution of issues with the Council on Legal Education (CLE).
It will be recalled that CLE has persistently disallowed NOUN’s law graduates from being admitted into the Nigerian Law School.
“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.” Okojie said.
He urged CLE to consider NOUN’s law graduates and give the institution its quota in terms of how many students they could admit.
