The answer is not a straight yes. The course content plays a role. Rusia is not a commonwealth country. Council of Legal Education will have to determine whether the syllabus of the Russian school meets the minimum contents or not.

Hello teelawal,
Good to know. Didn't he say that following his LLB in Russia he is also going to do a Master in the UK prior to applying at Nigerian law school? Would that not be sufficient? If not, just out of interest - what type of syllabus would a student have to follow to be accepted at Nigerian Law School?

What law school will do is to look at the courses you took and see whether you have taken the basic courses.

The other leg of this is the grading system. Law school will ascertain whether a 2:1 in that school is the same as 2:1 from any of the Nigerian universities.
All these will be ascertained first.
Once you are cleared, you will be admitted for Bar 1 programme first. It is after you passed the Bar 1 courses that you will proceed to Bar 11, after which you will be called to the Nigerian bar.
