FOREWORD

The legal journal is meant for academic and practitioners, researchers, the expression of views and opinions on legal themes and issues as well. This issue of educating the public on law started/began from Facebook when African law students were created by me in 2013. This journal evaluated the legal frame work in Nigeria police Force has different stages of evolution from pre-colonial, colonial to post-colonial era, which will be discussed further on history of police force in this article.

 

Nigeria Police Force is regulated by Police Act and it was enacted to solve the challenges of Nigeria and Nigeria Police. This article attempted to address the various vacuums which have affected the Nigeria Police Force for the establishment of Nigeria Police and for curbing of crime in Nigeria, which are major challenges Nigeria as a country is having till date. This article equally applies decided cases and recommendations which will stop bribing and corruption if followed. It goes on evaluating the Nigeria Police Force and issues they are facing presently.

 

This article expose the serious miscarriage of justice in Singapore as a life experience and which provides an effective and accessible system of justice, inspiring public trust and confidence, leading subordinate courts serving society with quality judgments, excellent court services, a variety of processes for timely resolution of disputes, our people as the most valuable asset, innovative use of technology, Fairness, accessibility, independence, integrity, impartiality, responsiveness.

 

The journal tells the importance of fair hearing which and the principle of Fair Hearing is one of the twin branches of the principles of Natural Justice. It opines that a person should be given adequate opportunity to defend himself/herself in a matter before he is adjudged.

 

The article has exposed some inadequacies in Zambian law which makes a girl child in particular, quite vulnerable to a number of harmful cultural practices. Child marriages have been identified as arguably one of those ‘harmful cultural practices’ that needs to be corrected by the sharp sword of legislation. Current legislation such as the Anti-Gender-Based Violence & the Penal Code are not efficient enough to curb the scourge of child marriages. But there is a glimmer of hope for the Zambian child as the National Assembly has taken a positive step towards outlawing child marriages.

 

The journal educates us on issue of reconstruction in company law and we discussed Merger, take over, defunct, acquisition, Bankruptcy and wind up as business reconstruction in company law. It equally proffer necessary recommendation needed as an advice and we concluded the paper.

 

The compendium appending exposes the need to be computer literate as a lawyer; African must change, for the eared muscles causes of poverty operation definition of future by Professor J.C. Agwunobi, Facebook aim and others.

 

 

 


FROM THE DESK OF THE FOUNDER

The journal is for the ministers in the temple of justice, academia, legal academia, lawyers in practice, legislators, lawyers in equity, and everyone in the society.
