It has been observed that theoretical research into written words is one of the most important tools of the legal profession as written words are used to advocate, inform, persuade and instruct. However, owing to the relationship between the conceptual purview of the theory and the external criteria proof afforded by empirical data and other socio – economic factors on legal research. It has become necessary to shift to the empirical dimension of legal scholarship. The Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (NIALS) was established in March, 1979 as Nigeria’s apex Institution for research and advanced studies in law and related disciplines. The institute in the fulfilment of its statutory mandate, conducts research and publishes its findings in books, journals, reports, monographs, periodicals and other learned collections for dissemination and accessibility to meet the country’s needs and enhance growth.
