The Lagos State Government today (10th of April, 2016) announced the launch of an online platform where the public, lawyers etc can all have access to the laws of the State.

It would be recalled that the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode at the launch of 2015 Revised Laws of the state recently, tasked the Ministry of Justice and Law Reforms Commission of the state to work towards making the laws of the state available online for easy access.

Governor Ambode, who announced that the hard back copies of the Laws would be complimented with an online digital version in conformity with modern day trends, said the decision became imperative owing to the need to encourage easy access to the state laws, especially by investors on the legal framework available to invest in the state thereby boosting employment opportunities.

The State’s Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Adeniji Kazeem, in a statement on Sunday, said the digital platform which can be accessed via www.laws.lagosstate.gov.ng, was the first of its kind and another eloquent testimony to the tradition of excellence which Lagos is known for.
