  • Plan sabbaticals and related schemes, intended to develop the faculty staff, as well as providing an avenue for exchange of ideas with other Law Faculties of affiliated and other institutions, with similar objectives.

  • Develop University teaching materials for use by the Faculty and other interested constituent bodies of the University.
