In November 2009, the Director-General of the Nigerian Law School, Prof Tahir Mamman SAN, said that students who passed through unauthorized law faculties would not be admitted into the Nigerian Law School. He said the Council of Legal Education will refer law Professors and teachers managing illegal law faculties to the disciplinary committee of the Body of Benchers .This is why Prof Tahir Mamman SAN is referred to as the most successful Director General since the inception of the institution. Currently, Mr O. A. Onadeko the previous Deputy Director General of the Lagos Campus is the new Director General of the Nigerian Law School.
