In the light of the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nigerian Law School has announced its decision to postpone the resumption of academic activities till further notice.

This is contained in a statement issued by the Secretary to the Council of Legal Education & Director of Administration, Mrs. Max-Uba E. O which was made available to TheNigeriaLawyer.

“In the last few days, there is resurgence of second wave of Covid-19 which necessitated the directive of the Federal Government to suspend resumption of all schools as well as academic activities”, she said.

It was added that the “earlier decision to reopen the Nigerian Law School and resume academic activities on the 4th and 11th January 2021 for Bar Part II and Bar Part I respectively” is no longer feasible.

“Consequently, the earlier resumption date announced by the Nigerian Law School is hereby deferred till further notice”, she added.

“We regret any inconvenience this may cause our students, parents and guardians”, the statement concluded.
