So you want to study Civil Law or you’re just scouting. Have you considered other options such as Common Law, Public and Private and International Law Anyway, it is good you go through many options as possible.

WAEC subject combination (requirement) for Civil Law
You’re expected to have at least 5 credits on the required WAEC subject combination needed to study Civil Law in Nigeria universities. This subject combination is also applicable to NECO AND GCE. So now, the O level requirement that is the compulsory WAEC subject combination for Civil Law are

  1. English Language
  2. Literature in English
  3. Mathematics
  4. A trade subject

 

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, 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.

 

JAMB UTME subject combination (subjects needed) for Civil Law
Prepare yourself well so you can score above 200 in JAMB UTME to be on a safe side (Just an advice) because anything short of this score may deny you Admission/Post UTME. Of course, if you have a score below 180, you can consider College of Education or Polytechnic

Please note – JAMB is not the only option for admission. If you’re having troubles JAMB UTME maybe it’s time you pass through IJBM, JUBEB, ND or Predegree. JAMB UTME subject combination (subject to write in jamb) to study Civil Law are any three Arts or Social Science subjects.

 

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

 

Direct Entry requirement (required A-level result) to study Civil Law
(i) Two ‘A’ level passes in Arts or Social Science subjects.
(ii)  NCE/OND/First Degree (Second Class Lower).
