Take a stand, get justice. “Law without justice is a wound without cure” – William Scott Downey
Her Honour, Judge Funmi Asaolu expresses that The Justice Court provides people the opportunity to have access to timely justice with opportunity to tell their stories in their own words. Parties have more inputs to determine the outcome because they are given opportunity to negotiate. The environment is less acrimonious, parties do not pay to file their disputes and the procedure is not cumbersome. Lots of litigants on the programme were not able to hide their amazements at the professionalism employed in the process not to talk of the ease of getting justice. Video and written testimonies from some plaintiffs and defendants are posted on the Justice Court website and Social Media platforms.

The Justice Court offers an alternative dispute resolution platform to mediate amicable settlement on civil matters for parties in dispute. The parties willingly accept to take advantage of the mediation process and have their disputes aired on television. The cases are real and the judgments are binding.
