Abstract

Analyses the controversy in Nigeria over whether the federal or the state legislatures have legislative competence with respect to arbitration. Evaluates case law on whether the Arbitration and Conciliation Act 1988 has "covered the field", leaving no scope for state arbitration legislation. Suggests that the state and federal regimes are valid alternatives for international and inter-state arbitration.
