SUN law students pay technical visit to Kano State High Court

Skyline University Nigeria (SUN) law students paid a technical visit to Kano State High Court yesterday, February 15, 2024. The students and law faculty delegation paid the technical visit for familiarization and collaboration with the judiciary in Kano State.

In his remarks, Prof. Bashiru Adeniyi, the dean of the School of Legal Studies (SLS) at SUN, who led the delegation, said the visit was to humbly seek the support of the chief judge of Kano State and the judiciary in areas of moot and mock trials, court attachments, symposiums and workshops.

He admitted that “it is with the support of the judiciary that SUN can be able to provide quality legal education that will be timely to address new challenges.” He then proposed the initiative of sending SUN students for attachments from their fast year to ensure they are exposed to enough practical knowledge that would facilitate their higher education.

The first female chief judge of Kano State, Honourable Justice Dije Abdu Aboki, while delivering her remarks, appreciated the visit and commended SUN for its wonderful educational innovations. She said the idea of student attachment from their first year is impressive.

She then gave a brief summary of her experiences before becoming the first female chief judge of Kano State and advised the students of the expected behaviors and character required in the legal profession.

SUN students then toured around the court premises, including the library. The dean of SLS and other faculty met with the chief registrar, senior judges and curt directors.

Giving the closing remarks, Dr. Abubakar Ali Chifwang, a lecturer in the School of Legal Studies (SLS), thanked the Kano State High Court for their warm reception. He said the chief judge is indeed a highly decorated figure that is worthy of emulation by youths, especially girls.
