She informed all that the Law Students’ Week will be climaxed with the Law Society Dinner scheduled to take place on Friday 18thFebruary 2022 at the Ocean View Country Club and Resort at Sussex of which she called on all Sierra Leoneans to support the society in their up-coming dinner.

He said on behalf of the team they are dedicating the victory and trophy to one of their colleagues who was their Sport Ambassador, the Late Christopher Stevens who passed away sometime in December of 2021.

Alhassan Idris Bangura revealed that in the last competition they lost on a post-match penalty to LLB 4 and since then they have been engaged on several practices saying they have manifested professionalism in this year’s tournament.

On his part, the coach for LLB 1, expressed disappointed that they lost to LLB 3 in the final, adding that during the 90 minutes of play his team was very much composed and they were on top of situation. He stated that although they did not win the final, but  they are very proud to have made it to the final stage after defeating LLB 4 considering the fact that they are only coming into the system but said regardless of all that they were able to compete against their seniors.
