Prof Ernest Ojukwu, SAN led a team of legal professionals to start the clinical legal education movement in Nigeria, setting off a radical transformation of legal education devoted to training skilled, public interest lawyers and advancing social justice in Nigeria.
The movement started with 4 pilot clinics in 2005 and now covers over 43 law clinics across Nigeria law faculties and the Nigerian Law School. Law clinics continue to provide access to justice to pre-trial detainees, and so many under-served population that are unable to afford the services of a lawyer. In addition, law students at the law clinics contribute to communities through different forms of support services, and human rights and justice education. The programme pulls in more than 2,000 law students annually that serve as paralegals.
