House Of Rep Shuns Nigerian Law School Fees Increment From N290,000 To N475,000

LAW SCHOOL

LAGOS FEBRUARY 22ND (NEWSRANGERS)-The House of Representatives has asked the Council of Legal Education to suspend the increment in fees of the Nigerian Law School from N290,000 To N475,000.

The lawmakers, through a motion presented by four members on Wednesday, stated that the country’s inflation rate is currently at 27.33% and is expected to grow to 30.00% by December 2023.

The House expressed concerns that to meet its responsibilities, the Council of Legal Education approved a 60% increase in Nigerian Law School fees from N296,000 to N476,000 for the 2023/2024 Bar Part II academic session.

The House also directed the Committee on Tertiary Education and Services to investigate solutions to the problem and report back within two weeks for future legislative action.
The Nigerian Law School in November 2023 jerked up its tuition fee to N476,00.

The astronomical increment in the fees was disclosed in a circular signed by the director-general of the Nigerian Law School, Isah Chiroma, to the students admitted to the Law School in Abuja for the 2023/2024 session.

The circular had showed almost a 200 per cent increase in tuition of the school from around N296,000 to N476,000.

The hike in the tuition fee came amid economic hardship caused by the removal of the petrol subsidy under President Bola Tinubu.

SaharaReporters had learnt that some of the students had resumed for the current academic session at the six campuses nationwide.
