Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider the College of Education or Polytechnic… Read how to answer and pass JAMB once.

Please note– If Mathematics is not listed among the Jamb subject on this post, then Mathematics is not compulsory for this course. JAMB is not the only option to gain admission into Nigerian Universities to study Civil Law.

Have you read this?

Can a science or art student study Civil Law?

Yes! If you are a Science, Commercial or an Art student, you can study Civil Law at the university provided you have the required subjects combination in your O level result. If you’re still in secondary school, you may find it difficult to change subjects to fit your desired course during WAEC registration because some schools may go against it.

Also, during WAEC or NECO registration make sure you know which subjects are been registered for you because some secondary schools are ignorant about the importance of O level requirements for university courses. Another alternative way to register the required subject combinations for Civil Law is through GCE.

 

What Civil Law is all about?

Let me quickly tell you what this Civil Law course is all about. A course description can further give you a better hint of what to expect. The words Civil law also called continental or Romano-Germanic legal systems to describe the law that pertains to persons, things, and relationships that develop among them, excluding not only criminal law but also commercial law and labour law.

They are based on concepts, categories, and rules derived from Roman law, with some influence of canon law, sometimes largely supplemented or modified by local custom or culture. The civil law tradition, though secularized over the centuries and placing more focus on individual freedom, promotes cooperation between human beings.

Civil law is often seen from the perspective of the primary legislative system, yet leaving room for the judiciary to adjust rules to social change and new needs, by way of interpretation and creative jurisprudence. One take away feature of the civil law is the clear expression of rights and duties so that remedies are self-evident.

 

Since you wish to study Civil law, permit me to go a deeper further… In a civil law system, the judge’s role is to establish the facts of the case and to apply the provisions of the applicable code. Though the judge often brings the formal charges, investigates the matter, and decides on the case, he or she works within a framework established by a comprehensive, codified set of laws.

The judge’s decision is consequently less crucial in shaping civil law than the decisions of legislators and legal scholars who draft and interpret the codes. Meaning, Civil Law is codified unlike Common law which is uncodified and countries with civil law systems have comprehensive, continuously updated legal codes that specify all matters capable of being brought before a court, the applicable procedure, and the appropriate punishment for each offence
