The biggest obstacle to starting a law degree in Nigeria is the cost. The cost of a public university education in Nigeria varies between $200 and $500 per year depending on where you go and what you do while in school. This is a significant amount of money for someone who is unemployed and trying to get by. There are other costs associated with living in Nigeria such as transportation, living expenses (including food), healthcare and child support. This means that the ability to get a degree will depend on how well you can manage these costs. The biggest factor that determines how much a degree costs is not only how expensive schools are but also how reputable the schools are.
