Group wants international law to be compulsory for students
The Nigeria Society of International Law (NSIL), has suggested that international law should be made a compulsory course in LLB degree programme in the Universities.
This is contained in a communiqué issued by the group and signed by it general secretary, Dr. Rufus Olu Olaoluwa, at the end of its 40th annual general conference, held at the Nigeria Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS), Lagos.
According to the group, international law is challenged by the recent developments in the world especially through the rise of nationalism in several states.
Their words: “There seems to be an inherent conflict between International law and nationalism and there is need for peaceful co-existence of the two, so that international law and nationalism can play their different roles in the interest of mankind.
“International law supports migration, however, access to socio-economic rights within nation states will reduce the urge to migrate especially citizens of developing world.”
The group therefore suggested that an urgent step should be taken to maximize the opportunities in several sectors hitherto completely neglected or not sufficiently developed.
