As Nigerians continue to suffer the economic hardship occasioned by the recent removal of fuel subsidy, the Nigerian Law School has raised its tuition fee from N296,000 to N476,000.

Confirming the development, a student of Abuja Law School who chose not to be named said the new fee would deter disadvantaged students from achieving their dreams of being called to the bar.

“Yes, it is true that they have increased our school fees to N476,000.

“This latest increase will deprive a lot of students studying law at the undergraduate level from achieving their dreams of being called to the bar, looking at the current situation of the country,” she said.

Corroborating reports of the increase @UkomahM, who shared a picture of the breakdown of the reviewed fee payable by new law school students, described the latest increase as an insane development.

“LAW SCHOOL INCREASES FEES BY ABOUT 61%. The last set admitted in Nigerian Law School paid N296,000… Now, with the addition of N180,000, the new aspirants to the Nigerian Bar will pay N476,000 as fees for law school. Tuition & Accommodation is N10,000, the rest is secondary but compulsory. It is insane… Just so you know, many law firms in Nigeria still pay young lawyers between N30k to N50k. After paying N150k per session in government university for 5 years and paying about N500k for law school, you’ll be paid N50k monthly,” @UkomahM wrote
