Renowned Law teacher, Prof. Chioma Kanu Agomo will again be the cynosure of all eyes next week Tuesday at the public presentation of a book of essays in her honour. The book is titled, “Rethinking Commercial & Industrial Law in Nigeria: Essays in Honour of Prof. C. K. Agomo.”

Spearheaded by the Department of Commercial and Industrial Law, University of Lagos, the event is scheduled to hold at the Faculty of Law, University of Lagos (UNILAG). Time is 1:30 pm.

The Chairman of the occasion is foremost jurist, Prof. Fidelis Oditah QC, SAN while the Host is Prof. Ige Bolodeoku, Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Lagos. The Chief Host is Prof. Folasade Ogunsola, Vice Chancellor, University of Lagos.

Agomo is a highly decorated academic who retired meritoriously from the University of Lagos after teaching for an unbroken period of over 40 years and clocking the statutory 70 years on March 1, 2021.

Famous for her spartan discipline and values, Agomo helped to nurture some of Nigeria’s finest jurists during her illustrious teaching career alongside equally renowned Law teachers such as Prof. Amaechi Uchegbu; Prof. O. Obilade; Prof. Akin Oyebode; Prof. E. O. Akanki; Prof. A. A. Adeyemi; Prof. Taiwo Osipitan SAN; former Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo SAN; Prof. P. K. Fogam and Prof. I. O. Agbede.

CITY LAWYER recalls that Agomo was not only the first female Dean of Law of the University of Lagos, her election was also the first time a Dean was elected unopposed. She again defeated her opponent to earn a second tenure as Dean of Law.

Speaking on her retirement, Agomo reminisced: “I have had a fulfilling career teaching and researching Law. It has been like a mission field where many lives have been touched and moulded to the glory of God.”

As part of her retirement ceremonies, Agomo was honoured by the university with a rare Exaugural Lecture titled, “The Reflections of a Working woman in the University of Lagos workspace.” She also unveiled her highly acclaimed autobiography, “My story, my song.”

An expert in contract and labour laws, Agomo was among the three distinguished women leaders who were honoured by the Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL) at its 52nd CVL “Leader Without Title” Leadership Tribute Colloquium (Special Series) for breaking the glass ceiling.
