According to Chairman Anniversary Committee Prof. Paul Ananaba SAN, who is also the immediate past Chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL), “The scholarships are designed to assist indigent Law School students and to ensure that impecuniosity does not stand in the way of a Bar aspirant becoming a member of the noble profession.”

Some of the alumni are governors, jurists, Senior Advocates of Nigeria, just name it! Ours is one of the most successful classes that the Nigerian Law School has ever produced. We are grateful to God for this uncommon grace upon our members. Another highlight of the red-carpet Dinner & Awards Night is a ‘Special Recognition Award’ to a deserving honores.”
