By Stanley Onyekwere


National University Commission, NUC, has given the nod for the Nigeria Turkish Nile University, NTNU, to begin its faculty law.

Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Huseyin Sert, made the revelation during an interview with journalists in Abuja.

“The objective of setting up the law faculty, especially here in Nigeria Turkish Nile University, is to help in abridging the manpower gap in the legal industry,” he said.

“Just as the main intention of the university is to contribute its quota to the Nigerian society by providing more manpower needed in all sectors, it is expected that law should also be included.

“We are mostly going to use this multimedia system of delivering our lectures to all our students. That is the main innovation and one of the best practices that is involved all over the world.”

Sert pledged that the institution would employ multimedia system in delivering lectures to students, adding, “Right from the beginning, we are going to start from that perspective. That is why in advance, we are preparing our course materials so that when they come into the multimedia projected lectures, students will get it.”

To bridge the gap between university tuition and labour market demands, he said plans are on ground to ensure that students are taught the practical aspect of the profession, right from the beginning.

The said the faculty would begin with about five chambers to get the students exposed to legal practice.

He added, “We want to make it the best law faculty in Nigeria. That is the plan we have. We are hopeful that this will be the future of law in Nigeria.
“Law is a critical part of every university. We understand that we have a public sister university, University of Abuja, but a lot of parents come to us demanding for law programme. We already have the requisite proposals that are around to support that structure
