The quality of Nigerian legal education is fast deteriorating and in addition, the current structure of monitoring the training of lawyers is grossly ineffective. This book discusses steps that can be taken in reforming the current structure of Nigerian legal education to revert this trend. The book proposes a system of internal institutional assessment by the law faculties in Nigeria. Financial, social - cultural constraints and political economy interference are obstacles to reforming Nigerian legal education, but institutional assessment can mitigate these obstacles. Using Mariana Prado’s concept of institutional bypass as a solution to overcoming these obstacles and also as a means of advancing reforms in the training of lawyers in Nigerian, this book proposes the adoption of institutional assessment as a strategy to create an avenue for stimulating reforms and promoting quality in Nigerian legal education.
