NUC Put On Hold Admissions Into Law Programme Of NOUN

The National Universities Commission (NUC) has put on hold admissions into the law programme of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), Prof. Julius Okojie, NUC’s Executive Secretary has, said.

Mr. Okojie said on Thursday that the moratorium would be in place pending the resolution of issues with the Council on Legal Education (CLE).The CLE has persistently disallowed NOUN’s law graduates from being admitted into the Nigerian Law School.

The council has argued that the teaching and study of law was clinical and cannot be done by correspondence.

“This matter is being addressed because it is between us, CLE and the university.“What we have done in the interim is stop new intake into that programme so that they do not have a backlog; we are addressing the issue.
