Names of all Presenters : Ikechukwu Bernard Okafor

Short Abstract : Since the formation of the Network of University Legal Aid Institutions (NULAI) in Nigeria the drive for the reform of legal education in the country through the clinical teaching methods has gained increased acceptance from the various stakeholders in the country. However, these efforts are still facing myriads of challenges. One of the fundamental challenges facing effective implementation of the clinical curriculum in the country is that of lack of effective technological support. The purpose of this article is to examine the various dimensions of this problem ranging from accessibility, effective utilisation, man-power limitations, attitude of students, and energy sustainability among others. The Afe Babalola University in Nigeria is one of the few universities in the country that have substantially conquered these challenges. The author intends to rely on the experiences of the university in this area to chart a course for better implementation of the clinical curriculum.
