Welcome to the homepage of the Faculty of Law, University of Nigeria, Enugu Campus, Nigeria. I am honoured to serve as the Dean of Law. This is the premier law faculty in Nigeria, established in 1961 as part of the University’s vision “to restore the dignity of man” by educating him on rights and duties in society.

The faculty has been blessed over the years with outstanding legal scholars and luminaries, teachers, students, and professionals. This is a faculty with a long tradition of excellence, which provides students with cutting edge up-to-date instructions and practical opportunities to gain experiences and upgrade their skills both in legal practice and other relevant areas. We offer a wide variety of undergraduate and post-graduate courses reflecting contemporary practices and advancements in the legal field in a bid to ensure that our students are adequately equipped to meet the challenges of the modern world.

The faculty emphasizes and ensures high quality pedagogical methods directed towards producing excellent and knowledgeable lawyers who are fit in learning and character to act as priests in the hallowed temple of justice. Our academic records and the achievements of our students over the years at the Nigerian Law School and at other international institutions (including world-class universities) attest to this fact. As a proud alumnus and long-standing member of this faculty, I confirm the excellence of this faculty. I wish you an enjoyable time as you interact with this site and familiarize yourself with our resources and programmes. I hope that you will actively engage with the Faculty of Law, University of Nigeria. The faculty looks forward to a fruitful relationship with you.
