Welcome : Department of Public Law


The Department of Public Law is one of the four departments making up the Faculty of Law, University of Ibadan and it is constituted by both qualified academic and non-academic staff. The ambience of the Department is serene and suitable for learning. The Department is staffed with academics who have carved a niche for themselves in their various areas of academic endeavours. The academic members of staff are imbued with the required expertise and skills in impacting knowledge adopting the best pedagogic practices. The Department offers courses both at undergraduate and post-graduate levels with contents reflecting current legal developments and practical applicability of legal principles. The courses at the post-graduate level are highly comparative in nature bringing out the similarities and disparities between the Nigerian laws and foreign legal systems with the motive of establishing the best standards for the Nigerian jurisprudence. The hallmark of the Department is to promote academic excellence and produce graduates who will be able to make meaningful impacts in the world through their accumulated expertise, and utilizing their academic and professional prowess in bringing about the desired positive change in the society.  The students are taken through different practical experiments in the course of their study by making them pass through the legal laboratory (the moot and mock court) and real time visitations to courts of justice to see the law in practice. The overall vision of the Faculty of Law, University of Ibadan is to make it a world class Faculty of Law, dedicated to excellent legal training, research and development aimed at meeting the needs of the society which is a shared vision of the Department of Public Law.
