FAQs on the Judicial Council’s Maiden Online Judgement Competition (NOJWC) 2020
1. What does the Union Stand to gain from the Competition?
First, the concept of the competition projects the core values of the University and the Student Union as problem-solving institution and entity respectively. The age-long problem of technical writing of judgments will henceforth be replaced by more plain English use for easy comprehension and understanding which is important to our overall progress.
Second, it is a precursor to a journal which the judicial council wishes to establish very soon. We believe there is an opportunity for us in other Universities to market our journal and improve on our readership. The ultimate aim is to have unfettered access to these schools library and when the time is right, we shall monetize the journal and bring in more money for the Student Union. It is a long term plan.
2. Is it the first-time the Competition will hold?
Throughout the world? No, this will not be the first time. It holds in India and in some parts of the United States of America. With facts made available to us, this is the first time such a competition will hold in Nigeria and in Africa. To speak more emphatically, we are making an EMIRATE out of this competition to showcase the culture, style, devotion and commitment of the Student Union, University of Ilorin to calling for attitudinal change in administration of justice. It is the first time it will hold on National Level.
3. Is the Competition only for Law Students?
No, It is not. You can vote your University in as the best entry. You can read the judgments written for more enlightenment. You can support your favourite judge.
