Partnership & Collaboration

For its effective functioning within the Justice Sector the LMDC has sought to create collaboration with other organizations and stakeholders. The LMDC-NBA FORUM which was inaugurated in 2007 was established to promote ADR within the Legal Community and to generate awareness among lawyers of the workings of the LMDC.

Collaboration exists with the Citizens Mediation Centre, Ministry of Justice, Lagos State. Memoranda of Understanding reaches at the CMC are registered at the LMDC for the enforcement through the machinery of the Lagos High Court.

The LMDC is one of the founding members of the Association of Multi-Door Courthouses of Nigeria, an organization set up  to promote the Multi-Door Courthouse concept, spearhead replications and standardization of its practice in Nigeria.

The LMDC had in recent times partnered with Chartered Institute of Bankers, Nigeria, (CIBN) for the promotion of ADR awareness within the Banking sector. The LMDC facilitated the Entrepreneurial Development Programme which involved an ADR workshop on Dispute Resolution in the Banking Sector: the Multi-Door Approach held on October 14, 2009 at the CIBN House , Victoria Island. At the Roundtable on Proposed Amendment of Banks and Other Financial Institutions Act (BOFIA) 1991 As Amended, held at the Sheraton Hotel on August 2009, the LMDC was invited by its collaborators, the CIBN to make its contributions to the review of the regulatory and operational challenges in the implementation of BOFIA.
