About the Legal unit
The Legal Unit was created to cater for the Legal needs and or problems of the University. Therefore, because of the needs to advice the University Administration on the legal needs of the University and Litigation that might likely arise from members of staff, students of the University and other individuals of the unit was deemed necessary.
The University from inception has always maintained the service of an External Solicitor, who is a Private Legal Practitioner, on ad-hoc basis, to handle its day-to-day litigation in Court. The External Legal Practitioner is however not directly involved in the in-house legal issues of the University to handle the legal unit, is the one responsible to oversee the running of the in-house legal issue of the University.
