Lawyers caught writing exams for students in Law School, DG tells NBA

Olanrewaju Onadeko, Director-General, Nigerian Law School, said on Thursday that some lawyers have been caught writing examination for students in the school.

He made the revelation while speaking in Port Harcourt, on Thursday, at the presentation of the report of the school at the ongoing 56th Annual General Conference of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA).

According to NAN, Onadeko, who did not state the number of affected lawyers, said the matter had been reported to the NBA.

He urged the association to take action against such lawyers to save legal education in the country.

Mr Rotimi Jacob, SAN, charged the NBA to address the issue raised by the director-general of the law school.

He said those found guilty should be disciplined after due process had been followed to determine their cases.

Jacob said the issue was serious because of its implications on the future of legal education in the country.

The outgoing President of NBA, Mr Augustine Alegeh, said the association had not received report of such incident in the past two years.

He, however, said that the NBA had a committee to handle the matter on receipt of the report.
