School of Law
Adigrat University School of Law was established as a department in the summer of 2012 GC with the unwavering inspiration of the then member staff and University management. Against an established fear that the department may get it difficult to operate, due to the limitation of staffs and resources the taskforce opened up in undergraduate law degree with only two existing department members and newly recruited two Assistant Lecturers. By then, the School accepted nearly 60 regular students only. In 2016, the School encouragingly established a legal aid center indebted with many responsibilities and community service. The law school has also a plan to increase its access and outreach by opening up other new branch legal aid centers outside Adigrat. Existing Programs Academic Programs
