Call For Papers – Nigerian Business Law Journal
The Nigerian Business Law Journal is a policy-oriented journal published by the Global Centre for Law, Business and Economy, a research institute and think-tank that provides research, consultancy and educational services in the law and development space. Started in March 2017, the journal is now calling for articles to be published in its February 2022 issue. Contributions are expected to fall within the broad disciplinary area of Business Law.
