The Legal Education Board (LEB), after inspecting and evaluating the facilities, curriculum, faculty line-up and other pertinent documents, granted the John Wesley School of Law and Governance (JWSLG) a permit to operate from the first to third year levels of the Bachelor of Laws program.

This was the third visit of LEB to JWSLG. The first was in July 2015; the second, in May 2016.

JWSLG now has a total of 165 students from freshmen to junior year.

It started in July 2015 with 35 students. ###
