Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR):

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to the several different methods of resolving legal disputes without going to court or litigation. Litigation system of administration of justice is the traditional form of dispute resolution by action through the courts. Over the years, it has become obvious that the administration of justice through regular court or litigation is usually fraught with long delays and associated costs as courts face backlogged of cases some spanning over many years. This is because litigation system of justice administration is adversarial and time consuming and is likely to encourage an adversarial culture and to degenerate into an environment in which the litigation process becomes a battle field where no rules apply.                                                                             

 It is in response to these delays and to ensure swifter and cost effective dispensation of justice and judicial control that Alternative Dispute Resolution and the Multi-door Court House were developed.

 Banking and Financial law Practice:


The importance of banking business in the survival and development of any socio-economic system cannot be overemphasized. Banking basically involves the mobilizing of funds from the surplus units of the economy and lending to the deficit units. Banks are large and complex organizations. Their clients or customers include individuals, companies, institutions, and governments. The relationship between bank and customer is based on contract under which the bank agrees to hold the customer’s money as savings, or to lend its own money to the customer as loan, and

 to render various other services. The contractual relationship gives rise to rights and obligation on each party.

 Banking practice therefore reflects underlying legal principles through which the bank gives the services which the customer expects while safeguarding its own position. It is believed that the legal principles underlying banking in Nigeria will become more complex with the introduction of the cashless policy and four new laws that will tighten the financial sector regulations by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). The bills are the Electronic Transaction Bill, the Financial Ombudsman Bill, the Nigerian International Financial Centre (NIFC) Bill, and the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Regulatory Commission Bill.

The Electronic Transaction Bill, if passed into law, would give effect to the admission in evidence of all electronically generated statements of account which the Evidence Act currently forbids. The Financial Ombudsman Bill, aims to facilitate faster resolution of financial disputes, while the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Regulatory Commission Bill is proposed to create an ADR Commission to promote and regulate the practice and use of ADR in Nigeria.
