Moot Court is a co-curricular activity that is usually based in the Faculty of law where participants take part in simulated court or arbitration proceedings, usually involving drafting memorials or memoranda and participating in oral argument.

Akande who visited the leadership of the University yesterday, said he has concluded to build a Moot Court for LAUTECH, even as the Institution warms up to start training of Lawyers.

Registrar of the University, Dr. Kayode Ogunleye, while giving a vote of thanks on behalf of the University, thanked Dr. Akande, promising that his gesture will never be regretted.

The Ag Vice Chancellor, Prof Rom Kalilu, had earlier, while welcoming the philanthropist and industrial mogul, appreciated his intervention in the university by offering job and cash gift of one million Naira to the best graduate of the university. He equally offered jobs to some other graduates who did well in their studies during the 16th convocation ceremonies.
