Editorial Note

This is the fifth volume in the series of NOUN Law Journal. As it was in the first, second, third and fourth editions, the publication is a result of the Faculty of Law being conscious of its research responsibility to the larger society. The chapters in this volume, as usual, provide legal reasoning and solutions on various topics in our contemporary society. They were carefully selected from many contributions after undergoing rigorous double blind review process. No doubt, the quality, depth and information content of the articles make them valuable literatures in law and social sciences and vital in resolving societal conflicts.

This edition covers wide areas of law. The topics covered in this volume are: A Critical Analysis of the Normative Principles in the Alternative

Dispute Resolution Theory; Protection and Vulnerability of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Accessing Socio-Economic Rights in Nigeria; An Appraisal of the Extant Laws in Determining Uniform Prices of Petroleum Products in Nigeria; Statutory Derivative Action under Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020: Untangling the Myth; The Engagement of Corporate Social Responsibility Policies under the Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) 2020; and Covid-19 Lockdown in Nigeria: Examination of Human Rights and Abuse of Office Issues.

I sincerely appreciate the members of the Editorial Board and the Editorial Committee for their commitment and diligence in producing this edition of the National Open University of Nigeria Law Journal (NLJ) Volume 5, which is a worthy continuation of the earlier volumes. I strongly recommend it to all law students, legal practitioners, judges, academic, researchers and indeed the general public.
