Multi-Door Courthouse (MDC) Initiative

The NCMG International embarked on a campaign to establish, replicate and develop court-connected Multi-Door Courthouses anchored on Alternative Dispute Resolution to promote the resolution of disputes in an atmosphere free of acrimony and contestations. A Court-Connected Multi-Door Courthouse is a Centre where different dispute resolution doors are available for the resolution of disputes within the Court system.

Through a systemic process of sensitization of the Judiciary, Bar, Corporate Organizations, government and public through workshops, networking, seminars and conferences, the NCMG International established; The Lagos Multi-Door Courthouse (LMDC) – the first court-connected ADR Centre in Africa in June, 2002; subsequent replication by the judiciary of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, in November 2003. Today, the multi-door courthouse concept has been replicated in fifteen states High Courts in Nigeria.
