Paris, 13 December 2022


The Lagos Chamber of Commerce International Arbitration Centre (LACIAC) and Jus Mundi have announced a partnership to make non-confidential LACIAC arbitration awards and related materials freely available to the world, for the benefit of the public good.

Under this important new partnership, Jus Mundi will host select LACIAC non-confidential arbitration awards and information publicly, allowing the general public to search for materials using Jus Mundi’s advanced AI-based platform and research tools.

Commenting on the partnership, Abimbola Akeredolu SAN, FCIArb, Chairman of LACIAC, stated that:

“The LACIAC rules emphasise the importance of confidentiality in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution proceedings for the protection and interest of parties. We however, also recognise the need for transparency to increase certainty and predictability alongside fulfilling the educational needs and growth particularly for young Africans who intend to build a career in this field.”

Jean-Rémi de Maistre, CEO of Jus Mundi, said that:

“LACIAC has become a major hub for international arbitration in West Africa, and Lagos continues to be a trusted and stable seat for arbitration in the region. Jus Mundi is therefore delighted to form this important partnership with LACIAC, to make non-confidential arbitration information openly available to the global public, and in turn enhance the world’s understanding and use of LACIAC arbitration to resolve disputes.”

The partnership will see select LACIAC awards and related materials hosted on Jus Mundi’s comprehensive international law and arbitration database.



LACIAC is an independent and full service international alternative dispute resolution centre with a focus on fair and efficient alternative dispute resolution in Africa. The Centre is part of the ‘Arbitration in Lagos Project’, which aims to put Lagos on the map as a reliable seat for international arbitration by ensuring that arbitrations conducted in Lagos are efficient, expeditious and equitable.

Native to Nigeria, LACIAC is aware of the challenges faced by disputants and aims to provide a viable and user friendly alternative to traditional litigation, offering a full service of ADR solutions including arbitration, mediation, expert determination and adjudication.
