Kogi Chief Judge charges law students to maintain high degree of integrity

The Chief Judge of Kogi State, Justice Josiah Majebi, has called on students of the Law School to maintain a high degree of integrity if they want to go far in the legal profession.

Justice Majebi advised on Monday when he hosted students of Law School to a farewell session at the judiciary headquarters in Lokoja after completion of their five-week compulsory court attachment programme.




The Kogi Chief Judge, who was in the company of other judges to whose courts the students were attached, admonished the students on professional ethical practice, proper dressing and societal decorum, noting that society will only regard and honour professionals who maintain the tenets of their profession, particularly lawyers.

In his address, Justice Abdul Awulu praised the students for their enthusiasm and willingness to grasp the intricacies of legal proceedings.

Echoing similar positions, Hon. Justice Angelina Salihu highlighted the ethical challenges lawyers face daily. “We emphasised the significance of factual accuracy and ethical behaviour in our courts. I must commend you students for your approach to legal arguments and case management,” he said.

Justice Estu Umar, on his part, underscored the role of character in the legal profession, emphasising integrity and diligence as the cornerstones of a successful legal career.

The Chief Registrar of the Court, Jubril Ibrahim, disclosed in his remarks that the attachment programme had prepared the students for the demands of legal practice.

He appreciated the judges for availing the students of their wealth of experience and knowledge, which the students have promised to apply in practice when they graduate from the Law School.

The Nigerian law school students sent from various campuses across the country, including Lagos, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Abuja, and Yola, gathered in Lokoja to mark the end of their five-week externship programme.

The court attachment programme is a pivotal component of their legal education that provides them with hands-on experience in the judiciary before proceeding to law chambers for further attachment.
