Sink or Swim: Evolving a Broader Definition of Courts through the Multi-Door Approach to Dispute Resolution and the Implications it has for Traditional Court Systems

Author:

L.H. Gummi

Abstract

This article comprises three parts. The first part addresses the Nigerian Court system, detailing the hierarchy of courts that make up our legal system or as the topic suggests the traditional court system. The second predominantly dwells on the introduction of the Multi- Door court system into our judicial landscape, and the uniqueness of its operation. The third offers my analysis, based on my experience as a court administrator on whether, with the introduction of the Multi-Door system we have swam or sank, and my advice to other judicial systems that are yet to imbibe the ADR culture.
