The school also called to the Bar 12 other graduates from the previous 2018 final examinations including Firdaus Amasa who was denied Call-To-Bar last year.
The Director-General of the school, Prof. Isa Ciroma, disclosed this at the July Call to Bar ceremony for the successful candidates in Abuja.
ROYAL NEWS reports that a summary of the examinations showed that two, out of the 1, 550 made second class lower while others had pass mark.
