In the fine and evergreen words of Charles Evans Hughes, former Chief Justice of the United States of America, “We are under a Constitution, but the Constitution is what the judges say it is, and the judiciary is the safeguard of our property and our liberty and our property under the Constitution.” These words directly resonate with constitutional democracies like Nigeria and are a credible justification of why the activities of the judiciary must be followed up more closely and intensely for a more direct interpretation of the laws we live by.

The judicial system all round the world is at the centre of development for the progress of nations. In the midst of a changing world and expanding frontiers of legal jurisprudence, the judiciary as the third arm of the government, has been invited to perform the function of a reasonable arbiter in our society. This marks the central theme of the 3rd Quarter for year 2021, and it is on this note that we welcome our esteemed readers to the 3rd Quarter of the Dispute Resolution Practice Quarterly Newsletter by Olaniwun Ajayi LP
