Raising world-class lawyers through research and development

The Hon. Justice Innocent Umezulike Foundation, inspired by the works of one of Nigeria’s astute and longest serving Chief Judges, Hon. Justice Innocent Umezulike OFR, FCIARB, FIIAN. is dedicated to fostering a more civil society by providing students, legal scholars and practitioners with financial and educational resources to tackle the demands of learning.
