Students

At CLASFON, we have a heart for students. The goal of our student ministry is to reach out to Christian law and pre-law students and assist them in connecting their faith with their legal studies and work. We invite students to join our fellowship of over 6,000 lawyers, law students, professors, and judges.

The CLASFON student chapters provide practical assistance by way of fellowship, prayer, Bible study, and outreach opportunities. It is the goal of CLASFON to establish local chapters at every law school in Nigeria. The CLASFON student body is a welcoming environment for all Christian Law students. In this great family, the spiritual,  academic, and social well-being of our family members is our priority.

There are over 50 branches of CLASFON in the different universities in Nigeria. Email us via this link if you are interested in starting a CLASFON chapter at your university or law school.

Membership categories in CLASFON include either Full and Associate membership.

Associate Membership is open to any person who:

CLASFON recognizes the Nigerian Bar Association as the National body embracing all Lawyers in Nigeria and cooperates with it in achieving mutual aims and objectives in so far as such co-operation will not compromise Christian tenets. Also, it recognizes and associates, as a member, with Advocates International (AI) and Advocates Africa (AA), as a global and continental or regional bodies or networks of Christian lawyer organizations.
