What is Law? Why do candidates go for Law? is it the passion for the course or the intentional evasion of Mathematics and other calculation courses? what is the reason for the increase in the search for universities that offer Law? The above questions are still lingering in the minds of many till date.
Truth be told, some students choose courses based on the JAMB approved subject combination requirements and information gotten from people as regards the schools that offer the course. Law is selected in a bid to evade any subject that involves calculations. many student look for courses like Law, Sociology, and some Art related courses that do not require mathematics.
In this post, you will see the list of schools that offer Law, the subject combinations, cut off mark as well as the entry requirements for the course.
Law is a course offered in most tertiary institutions in Nigeria, It is a course under the faculty of Law managed by the Department of Law. The importance attached to this post is immeasurable as students during their UTME registration, search for the list of universities offering Law so as to make an informed decision on making a sensible choice based on their catchment area.
Aside checking for universities or polytechnics offering Law as a course, you need to be sure of the correct O’Level and JAMB subject combination for studying Law because in the past, candidates who have ignored this move were either forced to change their school or lost out on the admission for that academic session. So we candidly advice you take the following information in this post Seriously.
To study Law in any of the under listed universities, candidates must meet the following basic entry requirements:
a) Must have obtained a minimum of five (5) ‘O’ level credits in the following subjects; Law, Government or Law and three or four other subjects in not more than 2 sittings.
