“We canvass the view that law scholars in Nigeria should re-imagine the intellectual content and breadth of their fields of study. They should now be thinking of moulding and shaping future advocates who would have audience not only in Nigerian courts but also in the global community of courts “This is even more so since Nigerians are found in virtually all corners of the globe.
These Nigerians in the Diaspora are either engaged in transnational trades or businesses or other forms of endeavour. “The question may be posed: of what use would the Nigerian lawyer be to such global Nigerians if the contract law curriculum, for example, does not transcend the traditional English Law assumptions?”
