The Council of Legal Education (CLE) has given approval to Anchor University for the commencement of admission into its Faculty of Law (LLB degree) for the 2023/2024 academic session.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Samuel Bandele stated that the approval came at an auspicious time when the admission for the current session was ongoing.
He said it was a journey worth the while for the institution, as the process started last session with the visit of the Nigerian Universities Commission (NUC) and was later rounded off by the Council of Legal Education.
“In all these processes, the school came out better as we are given a clean bill of health by these bodies. The commendation of the Council of Legal Education was heart-warming and it serves as a glimmer of hope for greater things in the nearest future.
“We were commended for massive resources deployed by the school authority in setting up the Faculty of Law; the facilities, the serene environment, the calibre of personnel engaged by the school.”
The VC pledged that priority would be given to students who chose AUL as their first choice in Law while some old students who might want to change to the Law will also be considered as long as they meet the requirements for the admission.
He also used the opportunity to unfold the university’s innovative medical and engineering programmes in collaboration with foreign universities.
“We are collaborating with some foreign institutions to train medical students and computer engineers. For Medicine, any interested student will spend two years in Nursing at Anchor University and go to Dominican University to complete his/her medicine course. And for Computer Engineering, such interested student will spend two years in Computer Science and will go to the University of Poland to complete his/her programme,” he disclosed.
He thanked the Chancellor, Pastor Williams Kumuyi and his wife, Esther, for their prayers and support.
He also commended members of the Board of Trustees, the pro-chancellor, and the management team for their contributions to the success of the institution.
The Director General, CLE, Prof. Isa Hayatu Chiroma, who led the team to the university, expressed confidence that the institution will run effectively for five years with the quality of facilities on ground. He said they should not hesitate to seek the council’s help anytime the need arises.
“We also commend you for your faithfulness and patience to wait until the approval is given before you commence admission,” he added.
