Each accredited law school also has an “approved quota,” which basically translates to the number of students they can send to the Nigerian Law School each year. This quota varies depending on the university’s facilities, faculty, and overall performance. So, understanding the quota system helps you choose a school with a good chance of securing a coveted spot at the Nigerian Law School.

Remember, this list is subject to change, so it’s best to check the latest version directly from the CLE website.
