Law firms and governments want law graduates who possess excellent writing skills and outstanding oral expertise.

Further, the LL.B Programme consists of courses designed to equip law graduates with a firm foundation to address contemporary issues on the local and international scenes in these fields: petroleum industry, mining industry, alternative dispute resolution, transitional justice, and clinical legal aid.
