Stop Begging for Failed Law School Students


The Body of Benchers, whose responsibility is to admit and call successful students of the Nigerian Law School to the bar, has warned Nigerians to desist from begging for the students who failed their final Bar examination.

The Nigerian Law School had recorded mass failure in her 2013/2014 final Bar examination. About 50 per cent of the students reportedly failed the examination. And now, the body, through its Chairman, Chief Onomigbo Okpoko (SAN), says they have been flooded with requests from members of the public for waiver and review of the results, which should stop now. A statement they released yesterday reads:
��Nigerians must learn to play by the rules always and accept what the rules of the Council of Legal Education dictate. Rather than question the Council of Legal Education on the mass failure, let us all for once, turn to those who failed and ask them why they
failed when some of their classmates made first class, second class upper and lower in the same examination.�
The lawyers we produce from our Law School must attain the standard of pass prescribed by the Law School authorities. It is not for the Body of Benchers or indeed anyone to interfere in any manner with the results released by the Council of Legal Education. Every institution of learning has its own regulations as to examinations and the mark to attain to be successful in the exams conducted by that institution. This is not limited to Nigeria.�
The standard set by the Council of Legal Education for passing its exams, are matters within the domestic jurisdiction of the Council. All those who love this country and desire to see Nigeria produce the best lawyers for the world should accept the results as published and encourage those who failed to work hard when the opportunity comes again.”
