Event Details

Africa Research Institute invites you to:

Justice without Lawyers: How Lagos fashioned an alternative to litigation

Thursday 22nd June 2017 from 6pm to 8pm

Dr Emilia Onyema

 Senior lecturer in international commercial law at SOAS, University of London

Dr Monalisa Ofure Odibo

Author of a doctoral thesis on the Lagos Multi-Door Courthouse (LMDC) scheme

Kehinde Aina (tbc)

 Founder of the LMDC; Partner at Aina Blankson LP; Founder of NCMG International

When the LMDC opened in 2002, it was Africa’s first court-connected alternative dispute resolution (ADR) centre. Adapted from a concept first articulated by a Harvard law professor, but embracing indigenous dispute resolution practices, the LMDC was both innovative and rooted in Nigeria’s past. Fourteen states and the Federal Capital Territory (Abuja) have since replicated the model, which consistently resolves cases more quickly, cheaply and amicably than Nigeria’s congested courts.

Join us for the launch of “How alternative dispute resolution made a comeback in Nigeria’s courts”, where its authors will chart the resurgence of ADR and the gradual erosion of a long-standing bias towards litigation.

Africa Research Institute, 55 Tufton Street, London, SW1P 3QL

Drinks and light refreshments will be served
