    ESPOUSING ADR: THE PHILOSOPHIES AND ITS PERPETUAL SIGNIFICANCE IN NIGERIA
    by
    AYINLA L.A.*
    ADEJARE E.O.**

    Abstract

    Litigation has brought a lot of pain to man and rigidity to the system due to the nature of the rights culture. It is a fact that dispute and conflict are not predetermined in most cases but result from human inter-personal relationships. However, the two concepts reside or are innate within both human beings and animals. As there may be nothing strange in the presence of this phenomenon in human relations, the quick response to dispute clearly determines whether an ordinary disagreement will remain a mere dispute or get out of hand to become a conflict or metamorphose into armed conflict or war. The settled fact is that ADR is a better and modern means of dispute settlement and is even now seen as a default process other than other rights prone mechanisms. However, it becomes imperative to espouse the philosophies underlying ADR as a modern tool in dispute resolution aimed at sustaining the significant role played by ADR mechanisms as against the other litigious adversarial methods.

    Keywords: ADR, Philosophies of ADR, Significance and Nigeria.

  3. BRIEF COMPARISON BETWEEN THE MALAYSIAN PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION ACT 2010 AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS [Read excerpt]

    BRIEF COMPARISON BETWEEN THE MALAYSIAN PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION ACT 2010
    AND OTHER JURISDICTIONS

    by
    SEAH LILYNN*

    It has approximately been 3 years since the Malaysian Personal Data Protection Act 2010 ("PDPA") came into force on 15th November 2013.[1] During the said approximate 3 years, myriad of updates have occurred to strengthen the aims of the PDPA in regulating the processing of personal data in commercial transactions which includes, but are not limited to the issuance of the PDPA Standard 2015[2] and the Personal Data Protection (Class of Data Users) (Amendment) Order 2016.[3]

    But how different is the PDPA in regulating the processing of personal data in commercial transactions in comparison with other jurisdictions? A brief comparison of the data protection laws in other jurisdictions indicate that the PDPA differs in the following aspects:-

    1. Non-applicability to government bodies

    The PDPA is only applicable to personal data which are processed in commercial transactions. The PDPA does not apply to Federal and State government bodies[4] (and also other exemptions such as personal data processed outside of Malaysia,[5]  on credit reporting agencies under the Credit Reporting Agencies Act 2010[6]  and personal data which are collected for personal purposes[7]).
