Do you want to know the price for Lawyer’s wig and gown in Nigeria? If yes, then you are in the right place. In this short post, I will share with you the price range for purchasing a complete barristers Wig and Gown in Nigeria.
Lawyer’s wig and gown is a “must have” for every Nigerian lawyer and law student. The reason is because, the Nigerian legal system makes it compulsory. Law students may not need it while they are in school, but immediately after graduating from the Nigerian Law School, it becomes a necessity. This is actually why I encourage everyone (both young lawyers and law students) to have it. Being a law student does not stop you from having his/her wig and gown because it is used in most Nigerian universities during moot competition.
No doubt, it is very difficult to find a place in Nigeria where Lawyer’s wig and gown are sold. However, I will discuss that later in my article on the best places to purchase Lawyer’s wig and gown in Nigeria. In today’s post, I will be letting you know the price for Lawyer’s wig and gown in Nigeria. So, if you are a lawyer or law student, you can start gathering your money for it.
