CURSORY : An Abuja based lawyer has condemned the way some Nigerian universities teach law, stating that it has resulted to production of unqualified lawyer.
The lawyer also condemned unprofessional practices displayed by some colleagues in the learned profession.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the government should pay more attention to law departments.
Adeboro stated that certain universities where law programmes are offered are not suited to do so.
He said it was not okay to teach law in Universities of Technology or institutions where distant learning takes place.
Adeboro emphasized that such schools cannot provide thorough legal training, a situation that results in low quality of advocates.
In his words:
“My take is that the lawyers are not enough but we have to look at the quality of lawyers being presented to the society.
“Nigeria is under-served in terms of legal representation”.
