Opting to study law in Nigeria can be a wise career choice, as lawyers are among the most well-compensated professionals in the country. Moreover, your work as a lawyer can have a significant impact on society, potentially even saving lives. It is essential to pay close attention to the JAMB subjects for law and devote ample effort to your studies.

To be admitted into a law degree program in Nigeria through JAMB, candidates must score a minimum of five credits in their O’ level (WAEC, NECO, or NABTEB) core courses and three or four additional subjects to boost their chances of reaching the university cut-off mark.
