It seeks to promote legal awareness among all people and encourage communication and cooperation among law students and lawyers internationally; contribute to legal education; promote social responsibility in the field of law; increase opportunities for students to learn about other cultures and legal systems worldwide; and publicize educational and career opportunities in law.
NILS also provides law students opportunities to develop their skills through our traineeship programme as well as through our publications.
