The Council of Legal Education has adjudged the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) Faculty of Law as the best in the country, based on the cumulative performance of its products in the 2014 Bar Final Examinations of the Nigerian Law School.

The Council’s verdict was contained in the Report of the Ad-Hoc Committee it set up to assess the performance of students at the August 2014 Bar Final Examinations.

According to the Committee’s Report, other universities in the top five category are; University of Lagos (2nd), the University of Ibadan (3rd), the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (4th) and the University of Uyo/Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (5th).

This Ad-Hoc Committee was set up in response to growing worries over poor performance of Law students from various Faculties of Law from different Nigerian Universities.

It was charged with the duty to review the result of the last Bar Final Examination vis-a-vis the performance of different Law Faculties; examine the teaching methods and facilities available for use at the Nigerian Law School and identify reasons why some campuses perform better than others; as well as examine the performance of students over the past five years so as to make comparative analyses, among others.

In its findings, the Committee noted that the “inability of various Faculties of Law to have uninterrupted academic activities in a Semester as prescribed by the National Universities Commission (NUC) for LL.B students contributed to declining standards”.

It added that “in a bid to meet the Nigerian Law School calendar, some Faculties of Law abridged their programme to compensate for incessant strike actions and other disruptions”.
