Abstract:The article proposes the establishment of a structured public defender programme in Nigeria through the use of law graduates in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). It is contended that such a scheme would expand dramatically the current level of legal aid in Nigeria. Drawing upon a similar model in South Africa, the article demonstrates how the Nigerian Legal Aid Council could implement such a programme. Notes, ref., sum. (p. I) [Journal abstract]
