International Conference on Law and Digital Technology

"Welcome to Babcock University, one of the greatest educational gifts to Nigeria and Africa. Its unique features, identities and cultures make it a unique place of study, research and worship.

The truth that universities are built to serve their communities, nation and mankind will continue to shape the inner and outer dimensions of our life as a community. We are resolutely committed to this value, vision and mission.

As a University we are not insulated from the happenings of the times. This university has to be part of the solution. This is achievable through problem-based learning and integrated curriculum.

In this galloping global age, we must be clear about where we are heading, our role in it and, our vision. The building blocks of globalization remain the nation-state. Our university must function within this scope." - Prof. Ademola Tayo (Vice-Chancellor, Babcock University)
