Nigerian judges to learn benefits of alternative dispute resolution at Kennesaw State forum

About 35 members of the Nigerian judiciary — including justices from the West African nation’s highest courts — will attend a four-day workshop at Kennesaw State University designed to encourage the use of alternative dispute resolution in the country’s justice system.

The workshop, hosted by Kennesaw State’s Center for Conflict Management, will expose judges from Nigeria’s Supreme Court, Court of Appeals, Federal High Court and various state courts to the skills, processes, funding, ethics and other issues related to using alternative approaches to resolving conflicts among parties in legal cases.
