A new book titled “Arbitration Law and Practice in Nigeria” authored by Hagler Okorie, an Associate Professor of Laws at the Faculty of Law, Abia State University, provides an extensive overview of arbitration as a mechanism for dispute resolution in the country.

The 599-page book covers elementary and general issues relating to arbitration law, its practice and procedure in Nigeria.

Published under the provisions of the new Arbitration and Mediation Act of 2023, the book delves into the meaning and nature of arbitration, its historical evolution and sources in Nigeria, as well as the typology and concept of customary arbitration. It guides readers through the arbitral proceedings, conduct, awards, recourse against awards, fees, and costs.

The book also explores emerging areas such as online/electronic arbitration and dispute resolution. Additionally, it offers insights into the arbitrability of the armed conflict in Northeast Nigeria and the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms in post-election disputes in the country. The concept of the Multi-Door Court House in Nigeria is also discussed.

For easy reference, the appendix includes the full text of the Arbitration and Mediation Act 2023, ICC (International Court of Arbitration Centre) Rules, Professional Ethics for Arbitrators in Nigeria, the Abia State Multi-Door Court House Law of 2011, and its Rules of 2014.
