Arthur Jarvis University Students Win Big at LAWSAN Convention

Students from the prestigious Faculty of Law of Arthur Jarvis University distinguished themselves at the Law Students Association of Nigeria (LAWSAN) convention which started on the 9th of November and ran through to 12th November, 2022.

Many activities were featured during the convention including The National Moot Championship, Brief Writing Round and National Public Speaking Competition.

Several institutions registered for all three competitions. However, only nine universities were shortlisted for the final stage, and only three ultimately emerged as champions, with Arthur Jarvis University, the first private university in Cross River State, clinching one title or the other in every single competition.

In the National Moot Championship, Arthur Jarvis University was 2nd runner-up, Niger Delta University as 1st runner-up while University of Ilorin was declared the winner.
