Lawyers caught writing exams for law students 

Some lawyers have been caught writing examination for students in the Nigerian Law School, the institution’s Director-General, Prof Olanrewaju Onadeko, said yesterday.

Onadeko, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), dropped the hint when he presented the school‘s report to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Nigerian Bar Association in Port Harcourt.

Onadeko, who did not state the number of affected lawyers, said the matter has been reported to the NBA.

He urged the association to take action against such lawyers to save legal education in the country.

Mr Rotimi Jacob (SAN), urged the NBA to address the issue raised by the Law School director-general.

He said those found guilty should be disciplined after due process had been followed to determine their cases.

Jacob said the issue was serious because of its implications on the future of legal education.

NBA’s outgoing President Augustine Alegeh said the association had not received report of such incident in the past two years.

He, however, said that the NBA has a committee to handle the matter on receipt of the report.

          Yes o. Very very crooked but to do this is just awful. Their employers would be a joke in Court and that’s a waste of clients money (not like we think about clients money though, we are more interested in our names in the legal market). But on a brighter note everybody will be laughing when they take the floor😄

    Ethics is a issue for all, but especially those of us involved in the law. It is a shame to see such a blatant lack of them. More over, it is a shame that those not involved may receive future prejudice.
