“As it stands, the university has equipped you sufficiently well with knowledge and skills to face the future with confidence.

“Therefore, the challenge before you, the graduating law students is to go to the Law School.

Izevbuwa said the present quota of the university at the Nigerian Law School was 100.

“The management is leaving no stone unturned to securing more spaces.

The dean urged the graduates to follow the standards at the law school and be good ambassadors of the institution.
