Renowned Legal Expert Share Insights on Advocacy, Ethics at Chrisland University Law Dinner

A constitutional lawyer and the Resident Electoral Commissioner of Osun State, Dr. Mutiu Agboke has stressed the need for law students  to prioritize academics and avoid the pitfall of the social media in order to succede in the legal profession.

Agboke made the urge while addressing audience, including law students at the Chrisland University’s College of Law Inaugural Law Dinner.

Speaking on the theme “Pathway to a Successful Legal Career”, Agboke who was the Keynote Speaker at the gathering, advised the law students that the only quick way to success in their chosen law career is professionalism and ethical practices. 

The erudite scholar also underscored the nuanced distinction between the knowledge of law and the practicalities of legal practice.
