Mavi’s Blawg is a blog about legal issues, debates, topics, controversies, etc. It features legal news that
could literally shock one’s conscience, stimulate thought or stir up a conversation. The material published here promises to be interesting and enlightening, and would range from news, debates, discussions, criticisms, to recommendations for reform. It is therefore a useful resource for law students, practising lawyers, paralegals, or even anyone interested in any of the issues discussed.
The bLAWg is owned and managed by Mavi, who also writes all the posts that appear here, unless otherwise stated. She has a first class law degree and is dual-qualified (as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria and a Solicitor, England & Wales). She also holds a Master of Laws (LLM) degree from the London School of Economics & Political Science.
She was inspired to take her writing wireless due to the challenges she and her friends faced while trying to come up with research proposals for academic essays/dissertations for their LLM degrees; they hoped to write on different topics (with Nigeria as a case study) but the common set back tended to be the lack (and sometimes, inadequacy) of analytical academic/scholarly material. As such, the main focus of this blog would be on Nigeria, but where developments in other jurisdictions appear interesting or enlightening and (hopefully) Nigeria could learn from, such developments would be written about.
Readers’ comments and contributions are not only welcome, but also encouraged. Also, please do not hesitate to contact Mavi if you have ideas on areas or issues you consider interesting and should be written on, or if you need general help or assistance on an area of interest.
