The Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies by its enabling Act has a mandate to run post-graduate courses in legislative drafting. Consequently, the Akinola Aguda School of Post Graduate Studies was established in 1997. The school, named after the first Director General of the Institute, the late Dr. Akinola Aguda, currently runs Postgraduate Diploma (PGD), Masters Degree (LL.M) and Ph.D programmes in Legislative Drafting. In December 2013, the School graduated its first Ph.D students. The School has over 30 faculty members either teaching at postgraduate level or offering Ph.D supervision. The faculty members are experts in their specialised areas of law ranging from legislative drafting to constitutional law, administrative law and environmental law, among others. They provide high quality teaching and internationally renowned research in addition to providing advice and acting as consultants to the Federal and state governments as well as international institutions. Students also benefit from tutorship from the Institute’s brilliant research fellows who provide a one on one interactive learning environment outside the classroom. Students can also avail themselves the opportunity of publishing their well researched articles in any of the Institute’s peer reviewed journals. The Akinola Aguda School of Postgraduate Studies provides the necessary tools for students who wish to start a career in the academia or to develop relevant skills for practice.
