With Six(6) Degrees, all with a First Class and Distinction. Best Graduating Student in Theology and Philosophy, First Class in Postgraduate Diploma in Education as well as Mass Communication, First Class in Law from both the University and the Nigerian Law School, Rev. Fr. Grabriel Emeasoba is, no doubt, worthy and in the best position to author this Epistle. Read on.

A LETTER TO MY BELOVED ASPIRANT TO THE NIGERIAN BAR


Dear Aspirant to the Nigerian Bar,
I congratulate you on your graduation from the University. Being a graduate of Law alone is in itself a momentous feat for which you must be grateful and happy. Congratulations! I am aware that many of you have already completed your application processes in preparation for the Nigerian law school.

As undergraduates, many of you, just like me, dreamt of that day when you would have the opportunity to embrace procedural law, and be able to gather the last package of the necessary apparatus to launch you into the hallowed legal
profession. I am so glad, that in your case, that opportunity has finally arrived.

Nigerian Law school
I feel obligated to write this epistle to you not because there is anything so special in what I want to say. Nothing gives me the assurance that I command the respect of your audience. I have only decided to write you because I learnt a lot from the experiences shared by
inspired members of previous classes at the Nigerian law school. I now know that with the right information, predisposition and attitude, the law school turns out to be A LAND OF OPPORTUNITIES.

I came to the Nigerian Law School – a Catholic priest – after my degree programme at the University of Lagos. I lived most times in the hostel at the Lagos Campus of the Law School. I
spent all my weekends in my parish ministering to God’s people and focusing on things other than law.

As an adult student, living under the hostel conditions was not easy. Law
school was the most stressful one year I have experienced in my life. I fell sick many times and nearly gave up countless times. Thank God I did not allow my strength to be broken.

But why am I telling you this? The reason is simple. If I could graduate from the Law school with First Class Honours, with all the challenges I had, any other person (especially, younger persons) who makes a genuine attempt, would certainly perform better. I have therefore decided to share with you some of my experiences and secrets.

Who knows? It might be of help. So, let me begin by telling you that the Nigerian Law School is not overrated. You must have heard a lot of things about how stressful the programme is. You will discover with time that you didn’t even hear enough about the stress. Nobody can truly narrate the experience of
stress; it is better experienced.

However, even though the Law School programme is a very stressful process, the Bar Final examination itself, for those who work very hard, could be the easiest examination you would take in life. If you burn your candles well and labour with interest, passion and focus, you would discover that the exam itself, unlike the programme, is overrated.

Therefore, if you could, throw in everything, I must tell you that the pain that accompanies failure at the bar finals is nothing to be compared with the stress
of law school. The pain could kill; it has indeed killed. But the joy of success at the Bar Finals heals all the one-year stress instantaneously. Believe me!

Therefore, immediately before law school, don’t burn out yourself with internships or other tight schedules. Try to rest and get ready. Don’t worry about buying a lot of books. Just have your money ready so that when the programme begins, you would know the right books to buy. Don’t buy all the books you see, otherwise, you would only discover that you had those books on the day you will be packing off from the Law School hostel. Wait for the...

Easiest way to get a 2:1 Or probably end up with a 1st class at the Nigerian Law School


Buy and totally assimilate Adaeze Umeze lecture notes coupled with listening in class and making your own little notes of salient points raised during lectures.....practice a lot of past questions...take time to read and understand exam questions before answering to avoid chasing a wild goose grin

I did just those things above mentioned.....textbooks were just for once in a blue moon reference purposes ...

With very little stress and a whole lot of pc gaming, I still ended up 3 marks shy of a 1st class at NLS cry


Note...a bit of natural intelligence is required toogrin....even if a naturally slow person does all the above and much more, he or she may still not smella 2:2

Congratulations sir.
Students reading this don’t ware yourselves out shooting for a first class because of reverend’s academic exploits without having the wisdom to also invest time in the things that will actually help you make it in real life. Pay attention to the part that he said on weekends he’s in for the work of God and nothing else. Hardwork shouldn’t be restricted to academics alone but also in building relationships and networking to go forward!
God bless you ��

Good luck to you.... Sometimes, the modes will just ban me from quoting you and when they're away probably doing what is always done in the secret, I beat them to say something to you.
Hope you're doing okay?

be saying rubbish there....you can't so excellently well as a smart lawyer and end up with that. Besides, those telling you they're getting 30k won't tell you the cummulation of their appearance fees, retainership and other benefits amounts to more than 10k. Don't be fooled! Some people claiming they are getting 30k are using cars, how are they surviving?
