From the 1st  to 5th of December, 2015, the Lagos State High Court will be having its settlement week. This is a period in the legal year where the Court earmarks cases which it believes can be settled amicably by the parties and these cases are forwarded to the Lagos Multi-door Court House which is also in the High Court complex in Igbosere, Lagos. The LMDC offers Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms free of charge and all litigants are advised to confer with their counsel on how to take advantage of the settlement week. 

The Lagos Multi-Door Courthouse (LMDC) was established on June 11, 2002, as a public-private partnership between the High Court of Justice, Lagos State and the Negotiation and Conflict Management Group (NCMG), a non-profit private organization. The overarching objective of The LMDC is to facilitate dispute resolution within the Nigerian Justice System.

Section 3(1)(8) of the Lagos Multi-door Courthouse Law states one of its objectives as to promote or undertake projects or other activities including but not limited to the settlement week which will further assist in decongesting the courts and help to achieve. 

There are so many legal issues that can be resolved through ADR including; banking and insurance related disputes; landlord and tenant matters; property disputes; debt recoveries; libel and slander; administration of estate; employment disputes; construction disputes; accident and tort; medical negligence; contracts enforcement; family disputes; succession disputes; and small claims etc.
