Meet our Lecturers

 

PG Lecturers

As the Faculty continues to maintain its pride of place in the legal education sector, the lecturers are here to help you excel. Please, feel free to approach them with your academic and social problems. Even where they are unable to help you solve them, they will be willing to ensure the problems do not overwhelm you. They will assist you to cope ably.

Since no faculty of law anywhere in the world can teach all the legal knowledge required in the classroom, you are advised to thoroughly use the law library. This is because, the law is only partially in your lecturers brain; the bulk of the legal knowledge you are required to know during your tenure can also be sourced from law reports, journals and texts which are inexhaustive in the law library. Our goal in the faculty is to ensure that you acquire not only legal knowledge for practical value, but much more to acquire training in legal thinking and this you can only achieve if you apply yourself diligently to the use of the library.
