The management of Lagos State University (LASU) has stated that it would not matriculate its newly admitted 100-level 2014/2015 Law students until the law programme has been accredited by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

The Dean, Students Affairs, Prof. Kabir Ak‎inyemi, who made this disclosure, said that the university could not matriculate the students because the university was awaiting the accreditation of its Faculty of Law’s courses by the NUC.

“The new 100-level law students are not yet bona fide students of the institution because they have not been matriculated and have no matriculation numbers.

“The university is not bound by any law to enroll students, whose courses have not been accredited”, he said.

Akinyemi said that LASU actually did not advertise for vacancy in its Faculty of Law and other departments yet-to-be accredited, but the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) did.

The don said that ‎it was until the faculty, among others had been accredited, before the fate of the students could be decided. (NAN)
