The Lagos Model United Nations organised by the Faculty of Law, the University of Lagos, is the biggest annual conference held in West Africa by a Nigerian school. The conference was birthed by the sweat, hard work and doggedness of the staff and students of the Faculty, who had gone for various Model United Nations (the National Model United Nations in New York and Washington D.C, the National Model United Nations in Rome, the International Model United Nations, Nigeria) and realized the importance of the conference not just for the University but for our society. Having won various awards in the aforementioned conferences, (the Honourable Mention (3rd), the Distinguished Delegation (2nd), and Several Overall Position Paper Awards) beating more than a thousand schools from various regions, the Faculty knew it was more than qualified to host its very own conference, to impact the youth of our nation who are in dire need of growth, and motivation.
We are dedicated to the mission of the United Nation as stated in the 1945 charter. We are dedicated to engineering contribution to a stronger, better and a more peaceful world. We strongly believe that this forum can precipitate more innovative solutions to world problems.
We are guided by the principles of MUN, which is Cooperative, hands-on, and embraces experiential learning, thus allowing students to confront a range of topics with the perspective of their assigned country or organization. We uphold hard work, teamwork and an overall nexus in at all levels towards achieving a better world.
