Scholars from different tertiary institutions such as the University of Ibadan, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and the University of Lagos converged at the Tom and Carolyn Walker Hall of the Dominican Institute,  to discuss issues bothering on the central theme of the Colloquium: The Judiciary and the Criminal Justice System: Odds and Ends.
