About Private and Property Law Department

The provision of information and perspectives on various aspects of law via remote routes is an essential tool in the 21st-century research environment. The Private and Property Law department of the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies identified the absence of a regularly updated information sharing platform that allows young researchers to express their perspectives on issues within the purview of private and property law. The Pri.Pro Law blog provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and the reporting of new developments in all aspects of private and property law broadly defined. It provides to researchers and others interested in these issues, the opportunity to insightfully reflect and express their ideas about relevant developments.

Be rest assured of an intellectually stimulating time. Welcome!
