2 2) Research Title Domestic and International Legal Framework for the Fight against Corruption and Money Laundering in Nigeria Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 206 Global financial stability hinges on collective action at the international level, regional and subregional level together with an effective national system. Robust anti-corruption and anti-money laundering regimes are important pillars of the international regulatory and supervisory systems and are part and parcel of the current efforts to strengthen the global financial system. It is clear that Nigerian government has demonstrated commitment by putting in place legislative and enforcement framework for the implementation of international instruments for combating corruption and money laundering by domesticating the international and regional instruments into the Nigerian legislations. Also the establishment of agencies such as Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC) and Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) saddled with the responsibility of fighting corrupts practices and money laundering in both public and private sectors is a clear indication from the government of their willingness to fulfilled their obligations as contained in the both the international and regional instruments they are signatory to. This paper intends to appraise the legal framework for the fight against corruption and money laundering in Nigeria. This paper is divided into three segments; the first segment discusses the concept of corruption, the international, regional, sub-regional and domestic instrument for the fight against corruption. Second segment discusses the concept of money laundering the legislative framework for the fight against money laundering internationally, regionally and nationally. The paper in the third segment discusses the two main agencies established by the Nigerian Government to fight corruption and money laundering such as the EFCC and the ICPC. The paper is concluded by suggestions and recommendations. Unimaid Journal of Private and Property Law, UJPPL. 2

4 4) Research Title Takaful Window Operators In Nigeria: Challenges and the Way Forward Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 206 Muslim jurists acknowledged that, the foundation of shared responsibility in the system of "Aqila" which is an arrangement of mutual help in some Arab tribes at the time of Prophet (s.a.w) as practiced between Muslims of Mecca and Medina laid the foundation of mutual insurance. Islamic insurance was established in the early second century of the Islamic era when Muslim Arabs expanded their trading activities to Asia, as a result of that, they mutually agree to contribute to a fund to cover anyone in the group that incurred mishaps or robberies along the numerous sea voyages (marine insurance). The contribution is usually a very small amount compared to the amount of protection available. This concept of insurance is basically an arrangement to mutually help one another when unfortunate event causing losses befall on any of the members. In short the mechanism of insurance inter alia brings about peace of mind, social stability and economic growth. The National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) took a progressive move forward with the issuance of a Takaful operational guideline pursuant to the powers conferred on NAICOM by the Act, which is the first national guideline for Nigeria s Takaful market. The Guidelines provide guidance on elements that are specific to the operations of a Takaful as it outlines and defines the framework within which Takaful operators are to carry out Takaful business. The Guideline is to be read in conjunction with other relevant legislation, guidelines and circulars as determined to be applicable to Takaful operators by the Commission. The Guideline represents the primary regulatory position with regards to Takaful and all other guidelines, legislation being secondary. The Guideline apply to Takaful operators (including Micro Takaful-Insurance) that are operating exclusively as Takaful providers ( stand-alone ) and Takaful business being provided by a conventional financial institution alongside their existing conventional insurance business ( window operator ) which is the main focus of this paper.

5 5) Research Title Regulating Takaful Insurance in Nigeria: Challenges and the Way Forward Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Babaisa Sanda Benisheikh 2 Department of Private Law, Faculty of Law, University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 205 The emergence of Takaful has substantiated a paradigm shift in the global financial service industry and this shift, though emanated from the Islamic countries, have today been accorded global popularity. Despite the global Takaful insurance market exhibiting impressive double digit growth of 8% over the period of , the regulatory environment remains a work in progress and faces challenges of inconsistency and conflicting interpretation across jurisdictions. Takaful being considered as a new phenomenon in Nigeria, with its absence in the existing insurance legislations may be a cause of concern for intending Takaful operators in Nigeria. This paper is segmented into three sections. The first section of the paper intends to discuss Takaful as a concept based on Islamic principles generally which covers brief history background of Takaful, the basis of Takaful from the Qur an and sunnah of the holy prophet (saw). The second section of this paper highlights the effort and approach of National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) being the supervisory and regulatory body of insurance businesses in Nigeria towards regulating Takaful operation through related Takaful Operational Guideline in 203. Also discuss under this section is the features of Takaful operational guideline aimed at protecting the parties involved in Takaful business, thereby creating trust and confidence in the Takaful operation. The third section of this paper which is the last part of this work highlight the regulatory challenges confronting Takaful business and suggested the way forwards tackling such regulatory challenges for Takaful business in Nigeria.

6 6) Research Title Risk Management System: A Tool for Developing a Viable Islamic Finance Industry in Nigeria. Ibrahim Muhammad Ahmad Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Umar Muhammad Abdulrahman 2 Department of Private Law, Faculty of Law, University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 205 Conventional finance industry has experienced serious risk as a result of the recent Global Financial Crises which, has contributed to the remarkable growth witnessed by Islamic Finance Industry in the last few decades and has been considered as an alternative to the conventional system. The failure of the CFIs (Conventional Financial Institutions) can further be argued that; the governance standards that govern the system which is in conflict with Shari ah gave birth to the accelerated growth of the present Islamic financial institutions. Islamic Financial Institutions (IFIs) must have comprehensive risk management framework as there is growing realization among Islamic Financial Institutions that sustainable growth critically depends on the development of a comprehensive risk management framework. A robust risk management framework can help to reduce the institutions exposure to risks, and enhance their ability to compete in the market. A reduction in each institution s exposure will reduce the systemic risk as well. Hence, it is necessary that Islamic Banks and Financial Institutions have in place a comprehensive risk management and reporting process to identify, measure, monitor, manage, report and control different categories of risks. Certain risk management issues are of equal concern to all institutions offering financial services, whether Institutions Offering Islamic Financial Services (IIFS) others. Many bodies that are concerned with the promotion of good risk management system have issued codes of risk management best practices, which have been widely accepted as the International Standards, and would be relevant and useful for particularly, addressing the specificities of IIFS.5 comprehensive framework of risk (A.B.U.J.P.I.L) Vol. No. 7, January 205.

7 7) Research Title An Appraisal of the Right Women and Children under Shariah Law as a Catalyst for Sustainable Development in Northern Nigeria: Contemporary Legal and Development Issues in Nigeria Mohammed Babakano Aliyu G. U. Ansar A. U. Ibrahim Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 203 Before 960, Islamic law was practiced in the then Northern Nigeria in all its ramifications including Islamic criminal law although affected in various ways by sixty years of colonial rule, but was still more widely and in some respects more rigidly applied in Northern Nigeria than anywhere else outside Arabia. During that period, the Northern courts in which Islamic law was administered was called Alkali courts. But the Settlement of 960 which was agreed to by Northern Nigeria s Muslims and implemented in a spate of legislative enactments in the run-up to Independence was one of the pivotal events in t history of the application of Islamic Law in Nigeria. In 960 Islamic criminal law was abrogated and from then the application of Islamic civil law in the North, as in most of the rest of the Muslim world at the time, was increasingly limited to the law of personal status and family relations. After 960 the courts and their judges became ever less traditionally Muslim and more western, and the judicial powers of the emirs were first curtailed and then eliminated completely. The programme of re-implementing Sharia begun in respectively in twelve Northern states, which it is the main theme chapter. Essays in Honour of Late Shettima Ahmed Mukhtar Liberty. Pp

8 8) Research Title An Appraisal of the Legal Aid Regime in Nigeria: Prospects and Challenges Dr. Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 204 Justice is a concept that begins from the pronouncements and substance of the law to the different people with different cultures at different stages with different forms of its enforcement. Thus, the technical nature of the law and its procedure all together combine to compound the problem of accessing justice. This article examines the existing legal aid system in Nigeria which serves as a machinery for the realization of our rights and access to justice in Nigeria as embodied in the 999 Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, International Human Rights Instruments, as well as Regional Human Rights Instruments2 which forms part of the Nigerian law3. A legal system that does not provide its citizens with the required legal aid services as regulated by these instruments is in effect occasioning them injustice, in essence an efficient and effective legal aid system for the poor is necessary in other to comply with the requirement of these human right instruments to which Nigeria is signatory. 8

9 9) Research Title Pedagogical Techniques to Teaching Clinical Legal Education in Nigeria: Prospects and Challenges. Mohammed Babakano Aliyu G. U. Ansar A. U. Ibrahim Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 20 Clinical Legal Education (CLE) emerged as a result of inadequacies of the traditional legal education which have concentrated mainly in teaching law in isolation from legal practice and ignoring almost completely the potential of practical skills and ethical dimension as a source of education for the law students. Traditional law education as indeed with most types of education is highly formalistic with classroom lectures in which the teacher delivers the content of the course with usually little or no participation from the students. Such a methodology has serious limitations in that it does not fully utilize the learning potential of students, as they are being confined to reading, listening and observing the lecture without participating in the learning process. CLE presents an opportunity to challenge the traditional dogma and links academic agendas to social needs and better prepares students for the professional practice. The history of CLE illustrates the importance of its social service objectives of providing an impetus for the development and expansion of CLE programme thereby offering free legal services to the disadvantaged members of the society. CLE has gained acceptance in many countries not solely on pedagogical objectives, but as a result of students and academic s aspiration for social activism.

10 0) Research Title The History, Achievements and Challenges of University of Maiduguri Clinic Dr. Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Aisha Umaru Ibrahim Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication 200 The introduction of clinical legal education programme to Law Faculties of Nigerian Universities and the establishment of law clinics in some of them is aimed at correcting the defect in the traditional curriculum and the teaching methodology, which graduates law students without preparing them to face the practical challenges of the legal profession. The clinical legal education curriculum corrects this defect by engaging law students in practical aspect of the legal profession. It is against this background that this paper seeks to discuss the history, performance and activities of University of Maiduguri Law Clinic. The types of legal assistance it rendered, the cases handled by the clinic and finally the challenges facing it in rendering legal assistance to indigent members of the society. The paper concluded by giving the way forward. (200) 8 Unimaid Law Journal p.49. 0

11 ) Research Title Advocating for Justice through Law Clinics in Nigerian University Dr. Mohammed Babakano Aliyu A. U. Alkali Mrs. A. U. Ibrahim Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Year of publication Accessing justice for the common person in Africa is a difficult task, even though, access to justice is guaranteed in the Constitutions, Regional and International Conventions to which most countries in the continent are signatory. In Nigeria, for example, the existing legal aid systems are faced with the increasing demand for access to justice despite the meager resources that are being provided to meet these heavy demands. What is needed, therefore, is a creative solution to the problem. One of the options available is the provision of legal aids and assistance through law clinics in the universities and the Nigerian Law Schools. For this reason, some Law Faculties with the approval of the Senate of the Universities, have intervened and devised another strategy by incorporating clinical courses and programmes into their various curricula with a view of assisting government to achieve its agenda of promoting access to justice In the country. No doubt, this is a good development in that clinical law students can now have the advantage of receiving complaints from clients, analyze these complaints and provide solution that can effectively dispose of the problems at the clinic levels, without necessarily going for litigations to obtain the same result. In this way, students and lecturers can be seen as active contributors to achieving access to justice in the country. The establishment of law clinics in the universities and Nigerian Law School is a right step in the fight direction because it inculcates in the minds of the students a spirit of Public Interest Lawyering, Community Service and Professional Responsibility of law as a noble profession.

On the other part the concept of Al-Majiri system of education and how it is practice today in Nigeria has been a subject of debate among Muslim scholars as to whether it is inconformity with Islamic principles or not as well critics of concept such as Human rights groups, civil liberty organization and a subject of great concern to the government at all levels.

13 3) Research Title Enhancing Access to Justice to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP s): The Role of Lawyers and the University Law Clinic Dr. Mohammed Babakano Aliyu Dr. Muhammad Musa Saleh 2 Department of Private Law, Faculty of Law, University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Unpublished Year of publication Boko Haram conflict has evolved significantly in 2009 following clashes between members of the group and the Nigerian Police force. The deliberate targeting of security personnel at the beginning of the conflict and civilians members of the society has been pronounced in this conflict, contributing to acute civilian insecurity, large-scale displacement, and humanitarian crisis. As a result of that Internally Displaced Persons (IDP S) camps were established by the State Government in Maiduguri, Bama, Dikwa and Banki amongst others.

14 4) Research Title The Madaris and the Shari ah Programme in the Nigerian Universities: the Need for Review and Reconnection Dr. Ibrahim Muhammad Ahmad Dr. Mohammed Aliyu Babakano Dr. Muhammad Alhaji Abubakar Dr. Ibrahim Muhammad Ahmad, Department of Shariah, Faculty of Law, University of Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Tel: Unpublished Year of publication Madrasah (pl madaris) was the centre for scholarship and learning in Muslims communities in Nigeria. The Scholarship in the Madrasah includes spiritual, legal, and mundane knowledge. However, Madrasah and its scholarship were marginalised and its gradual disappearance was predicted through educational curriculum introduced by the colonials and same was adapted even after the colonial period. The Madrasah scholarship hitherto was the institution that trained judges and scholars of Islamic jurisprudence. Furthermore, Islamic law is not confined to the four walls of shari ah courts or Madrasah and universities however; its application to the economy, commercial transactions and matters of personal status cannot be overemphasised. Colleges and faculties of law in Nigerian universities are the statutory educational institutions empowered to train and prepare personnel for admission into the Nigerian law school for onward vocational training and call to the Nigerian bar. However, the divergence of the curriculum in the Madrasah and the law faculties in the Nigerian universities has added to the challenge of quality in teaching Islamic legal subjects and LLB Shari ah graduates. The current Shari ah programme in the Nigerian universities is not geared towards market oriented courses. The paper intends to examine Madrasah and Shari ah programme in law faculties of Nigerian universities. The paper recommends among others that the Madrasah and LLB Shari ah programme curriculum should be reviewed to establish connection for quality output in the Islamic legal education training in Nigeria. 4
