The Faculty of Law, Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin, Ondo State places high value on teaching and research and these two are given prime priorities as reflected in the curriculum and entire package of the LL.B programme being offered by the faculty. We note that there is a paradigm shift in the practice of law to meet with the pace at which the global world is adapting to evolving changes in socio economic and political landscape, we are therefore committed to providing modern and contemporary legal education and research needed to succeed in the ever developing world. We are poised to produce knowledgeable intellectuals and skilled professionals equipped to contribute to the national economic and social development in all ramifications where the knowledge of law will be required.
Against the background that the knowledge of law is relevant and needed in every segment of the society, the faculty is set to establish workable and beneficent relationship with the outside world both in academic and relevant industries. The faculty is also blessed with both academic staff members and non-academic support staff that provide qualitative scholarship and moral rectitude in order to ensure that the students realize their lofty goals, dreams and aspirations of becoming law experts in the diverse and multifaceted areas of law. The human efforts dished out by the faculty are uniquely complemented with the cultural hub, serenity and natural ambience all of which guarantee a conducive environment for students to learn.
Over 70 percent of the staff members are PhD holders in diverse areas of law and are graduates from reputable universities both onshore and offshore. A modern separate law library infused with modern technological aid in teaching and research is being built in the faculty to serve the law students exclusively. Our e-library is constantly alive with internet to serve the students and staff researchers. The new library aims at driving the frontier of research and knowledge based study in order to ensure academic growth and professional competence.
In order to create an atmosphere of diversity of perspectives to strengthen the intellectual enquiries of our students, we have carefully designed a town and wig programme where people who are experts in the legal profession both in the academia and in litigation/industry are periodically invited to give stimulating talks and professional legal discourse on diverse areas of law. Why not join us to reach these enviable academic goal and professional accomplishments?
EU Law Faculty promises the best legal education.
The Elizade University Law programme is established to contribute significantly to the enrichment and enhancement of legal study and practice. It is designed to provide legal education within the realm of a dynamic socio – political environment that encompasses the national and global trends and challenges. The main focus of the Law programme is to create an environment that encourages intellectual rigour, analytical and critical engagement as well as profound ethical standards. The programme will produce law graduates who can compete actively in legal, social, economic and political developments on a global scale.
The Law programme of the University is also designed to produce lawyers readily capable of coping with the legal needs of the society in the light of social, economic, political, cultural and technological advancements. Graduates of the programme would be able to deliver competently on the expectations of employers and other users of their services in government, legal practice and academics. It is in this sense that the Law programme has been designed to ensure that Law graduates have a good general knowledge of Law, and a clear understanding of the place and importance of Law in the society. The programme will therefore introduce students to general knowledge in Law, acquaint them with principles of judicial process and legal development, and equip them with the basic tools of legal analysis and methods.

The contents of the courses also reflect global developments.
The Programme is based on the course credit system, which offers students a broad-based and qualitative legal education through the conscious combination of legal and non-legal courses at the teaching, research and community service levels to produce lawyers who have a wide knowledge of the society and environment and are readily able to use law as a tool for the solution of social, political, economic and cultural problems in the society.
