The Legal Studies Department is a service department. Its primary function is to teach borrowed law courses to all the departments (from ND to HND final students) that must take the relevant departmental staff law courses before graduation.

The part time studies department is focused towards accommodating people who cannot attend the full regular programme due to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control. The part time studies department took off over 30 years ago with a view of reducing the rate of illiteracy within the nation beginning with the South east region. To this end, the department is currently running academic programmes in its department education.
