Between Law school and NOUN Law Graduates

THE sudden transfer of Hon. Justice B.O. Quadri of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt to Abuja Judicial Division after fixing a date for judgment on the Nigerian Law School admission tussle between the students of National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) and the Council of Legal Education (CLE), leaves much to be desired. The preliminary objection alone lingered in the court for over a year but finally was ruled in favour of the students prior to commencement of the substantive matters.   NOUN, a FGN-special project in compliance with the UN Millennium Development Goal (MDG) on education was established by Chief Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration. To motivate Nigerians, Obasanjo enrolled in the university’s programme, graduated and is presently doing a doctorate degree in Theol...

Under the guidelines, a market maker is defined as “a participant, licensed by th...

TYPES AND CLASSIFICATIONS OF LAW

By Olanrewaju Olamide There are different meanings of the word law. Perhaps this is best conveyed by the view of Baron De Montesquieu in his book, Spirit of the Law, where he wrote:   “Laws in the wider possible connotations are any necessary relation arising from a thing in nature. In this sense, all beings have their laws; the Deity his laws, the material world it laws, the intelligence superior to man its laws, the beasts their laws, man his law…” From the above, it can be seen that law is used in multiple senses. Thus it is imperative for the different types of laws to be considered. They are:   Eternal Law Divine Law Natural Law Human or Positive Law Eternal Law: The word eternal means something that would last forever. Eternal laws are laws that have applied since the begin...
