Dear Courtroom Readers,

It is here at last! The first compilation of Courtroom articles, authored by the third generation of Scribes: Kanyinsola Olorunnisola and ‘Kunle Adebajo of the University of Ibadan.

Now you can read the arguments without having to click a series of links or spend out of your bandwidth. It is a glimpse into various issues, ranging from political to philosophical, from serious to comical. It is a pastiche of various styles and approaches not only to writing but polemics.
