The University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) is a tertiary institution in the Nigerian capital Abuja. It was established on January 1, 1988 (under Decree No. 110 of 1992 as amended) as a dual-mode university with the mandate to run conventional and distance learning programmes.
Academic work began in this Federal University in 1990 with the matriculation of its pioneer students. Despite having a troubled past, the University is known to have significantly improved and is now reportedly ranked amongst the top 10 universities in Nigeria by the National Universities Commission. The high rank is suspected to be owed to the university’s move from its mini campus to its state of the art Permanent site.
The Law Students Association of Nigeria of the University’s Faculty of Law Chapter, is highly ranked for having won the University many National and International competitions and also for the performances of its graduates at the Nigerian Law School.
