On this historic day, the South-East zonal Directorate of Policies, Programs and Projects of the Law Students’ Association of Nigeria (LAWSAN) under the leadership of Victor Ezesinachi Okoli organized a massive outreach tagged “LAWSAN Goes To School”  which is in line with the vision of the National President Sen.

The theme of this outreach was “What the Law is and what the Law is not… bringing the Law home.” The aim of the outreach was to create awareness among Secondary School students in the South East on certain important aspects of the Law in society. The students were taught their basic rights as citizens of Nigeria, the limitations of these rights and also, their duties and obligations as citizens of the country.
