    Abstract

    AKOMOLEDE, TI. Contemporary legal issues in electronic commerce in Nigeria. PER [online]. 2008, vol.11, n.3, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1727-3781.

    The Internet has no doubt added a great deal to the quality of human life today. It has knitted the world together as a global village.

However, the emergence of electronic commerce has also brought with it a number of legal and socio-economic problems, especially in the developing nations such as Nigeria - problems which pose significance challenges to the legal regime of electronic commerce in those countries. This paper examines these legal issues within the context of the current legal and regulatory framework for electronic commerce in Nigeria.
