CLRNN Call for Blogposts


CLRNN is delighted to announce that it is now accepting blogpost submissions on commercial law and practice.

Commercial Law Research Network Nigeria (CLRNN) is a network established to promote research and knowledge exchange on matters relating to the development and reform of commercial law in emerging economies, using Nigeria as a focal point. It responds to the challenges emerging economies like Nigeria face in designing commercial laws that fit both their realities and the interconnected global systems. To achieve this, CLRNN provides a platform for developing and disseminating ideas supported by rigorous research and stakeholder input. Ultimately, we aim to provide a crucial pipeline through which relevant ideas can be transported into concrete policy.

Leveraging our expanding network, CLRNN is poised to become a one-stop shop for new ideas on commercial law reform in Nigeria. Therefore, we invite contributors seeking to advance the development of commercial law in Nigeria to submit well-researched essays on topics relevant to the commercial law practice in Nigeria.


We strongly encourage submissions from #EarlyCareerResearchers. Practitioners, policymakers, regulators and end-users of commercial law are also encouraged to make submissions.

Contributors are encouraged to explore topics and themes relating to any aspect of commercial law, including Intellectual Property Law, International Trade and Development, Data Protection and Privacy, Company Law, Mergers and Acquisition, Banking and Insurance Law and Alternative Dispute Resolution. Contributors can also submit essays that explore areas of law not explicitly mentioned above. 

 Contributions will be in the form of blogposts of up to 1000 words on the chosen aspect of Commercial Law. They should be designed to inform, as well as provoke informed conversations and debates among our readers. Submissions are received and published on a rolling basis.
