Monday Motivatiion : Always work hard in silence and only let your success make noise.

With the president of NBA Mahmoud Abubakar Balarabe SAN on Day 2 of the just concluded NCMG conference.

The idea of principled negotiation was first developed by Roger Fisher and William Ury of the Harvard Negotiation Project. It was set out in their famous book, 'Getting to Yes: Negotiating Agreement Without Giving In', and is now taught in mediation training and business schools around the world.
Principled negotiation consists of a series of negotiation techniques and strategies which are designed to help parties achieve a fair outcome. These can be applied in any negotiation, whether it is in business or in our everyday lives.
It is often described as 'integrative negotiation' or a win-win negotiation, however this is not strictly accurate. While principled negotiation techniques are designed to maximise the chances of a win-win outcome, this may not always be possible.
Even when a win-win is not possible, the 'Getting to Yes' approach will still help to ensure you are not taken advantage of and that the outcome achieved is fair and reasonable.
Separate the People from the Problem

The first thing to focus on is separating the people from the problem.
The authors of 'Getting to Yes’ noticed that a common barrier to success in negotiation is a tendency to blame and to make things personal, rather than focusing on solving the problem.
In most cases, the people involved just want a fair deal for themselves. They are not out to hurt the other side for the sake of it or on some other personal vendetta.
Going into a negotiation with a problem-solving mentality can dramatically improve the chances of success. For example, rather than dismissing the other party as stupid, consider why they are reacting this way and ask probing questions to get to the bottom of it. It may sound obvious, but it is in our nature to become defensive in these situations. This is something that takes practice and conscious effort.

Q. IS THE VICTIM ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESS?

ANS: Yes.
• Section 76[2][a] of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State provides as follows:
“The Prosecutor may only enter into an agreement contemplated in subsection [1] of this section-
[a] after consultation with the Police Officer responsible for the investigation of the case and a reasonable feasible, the victim and [b] with due regard to the nature of and circumstances relating to the offence, the Defendant and the interest of the community.
• Section 76[3] of the Law also provides that the Prosecutor shall allow the Complainant to make representations regarding the content of the agreement and a compensation or restitution order.
• The victim and society are given full consideration.

Q. ARE THERE FACTORS WHICH ACT AS GUIDELINES IN MAKING PLEA-BARGAIN APPLICATIONS?

ANS: Yes.
The Plea Bargain Committee considers each Application separately based on the public interest, interest of justice and the need to prevent abuse of the legal process. Several factors are considered including the following:
• Speedy dispensation of justice,
• Long interval between commission of the offence and the trial,
• The need to protect victims of the crime.
• Cost of prosecution and the likelihood of a protracted trial.
• Case management.
• Protracted nature of the period spent in prison custody while awaiting trial even where the chances of conviction are high.

Q. HOW DOES ONE INITIATE PLEA BARGAIN UNDER THE ADMINISTRATION OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE LAW OF LAGOS STATE?

ANS: The procedure for the approval of a plea bargain is as follows:
• The Defence in a criminal case shall submit an application for plea bargain to the office of the Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice or the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Q. ARE PLEA BARGAINS AVAILABLE TO EVERY DEFENDANT?

ANS: Yes.
• Any Defendant can apply for a Plea Bargain. Section 75 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State, 2015 provides as follows:
“Notwithstanding anything in this Law or in any other law, the Attorney-General of the State shall have power to consider and accept a plea bargain from a person charged with any offence where the Attorney-General is of the view that the acceptance of such plea bargain is in the public interest, the interest of justice and the need to prevent abuse of legal process”.
Every offence is amenable to Plea Bargains but each case would be considered based on its peculiar facts in accordance with Plea Bargain Guidelines.

Q. WHY SHOULD A DEFENDANT ACCEPT A PLEA BARGAIN?

ANS: In considering whether to accept a Plea Bargain or not, a Defendant may consider several issues especially his chances of successfully defending the case against him during trial. Where such chances are slim, a plea bargain will be beneficial to the Defendant.A DEFENDANT MUST MAKE SURE HE SEEKS PROPER GUIDANCE FROM HIS COUNSEL BEFORE ACCEPTING A PLEA BARGAIN.

Q. HOW DOES THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL DECIDE?
ANS: In Lagos State, the Honourable Attorney-General makes his decisions based on recommendations from the Plea-Bargain Committee, a committee set up in the Directorate of Public Prosecutions for the purpose of considering cases referred for Plea Bargain.

Q. ARE THERE ANY ADVANTAGES TO THE PROSECUTION?
ANS: Yes.
• It saves time and resources while also reducing the trauma to the victims.
• It aids Prison decongestion.
• It helps case management.
• It reduces the number of inmates awaiting trial.

Q. ARE THERE ANY ADVANTAGES TO THE JUDICIARY?

ANS: Yes.
• The major advantage to the Judiciary is that it helps to conserve the limited resources of the Judiciary by reducing the number of Criminal Cases for trial.
• Reduces the burden of the court in conducting a trial on every case charged.

Early in my legal career, a wise mentor once asked in a meeting: “What is it that we do?” to which someone replied, “We provide a service. We are service providers.” "No," he explained, "Clients aren't looking for a service, they are looking for a solution. People come to us with their headaches. They want an aspirin.” The unfortunate reality of litigation is that too often it requires that you swallow a migraine before you can tackle your headache. In mediation, you address the conflict head-on and create a resolution that works best for you. #divorce #familymediation #familylawyer #disputeresolution #losangeles #family #conflicts #conflict #familyconflict #resolution #alternativedisputeresolution #familylaw #familymediator #losangelescountybarassociation #lacba #bhba #california #llm #legal #law #familymatters #yourfamily

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has been appointed to the United Nations (UN) High-Level Advisory Board on Mediation along with 17 other current and former global leaders. The Secretary-General, Antonio Gutierrez had in September announced the establishment of the board to provide him with advice on mediation initiatives and back specific mediation efforts around the world. The Board is composed of 18 current and former global leaders, senior officials and renowned experts who bring together an unparalleled range of experience, skills, knowledge, and contacts. The Board is expected to allow the UN to work more effectively with regional organizations, non-governmental groups and others involved in meditation around the world. Other world leaders appointed to the board are President Michelle Bachelet (Chile) who is serving her second non-consecutive term as president; Radhika Coomaraswamy (Sri Lanka); a 2011 Nobel Peace Laureate, Leymah Gbowee (Liberia); Jean-Marie Guéhenno (France), former President of Finland, Tarja Halonen (Finland); David Harland (New Zealand), Noeleen Heyzer (Singapore), and Nasser Judeh (Jordan), Ramtane Lamamra (Algeria), Graça Machel (Mozambique), Asha-Rose Migiro (Tanzania), Raden Mohammad and Marty Muliana Natalegawa (Indonesia), Roza Otunbayeva (Kyrgyzstan), Michèle Pierre-Louis (Haiti), José Manuel Ramos-Horta (Timor-Leste), Gert Rosenthal (Guatemala) and Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby (United Kingdom).

Q. WHAT IS PLEA BARGAIN?

ANS: This is the negotiation of an agreement between the prosecution and the defence whereby the Defendant is permitted to plead guilty to a reduced charge in exchange for a more lenient sentence or an agreement to drop other charges against the Defendant.

Q. IS PLEA BARGAINING LEGAL?

Ans: Yes.
• Sections 75 and 76 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Law of Lagos State [ACJL], 2015 make provision for Plea Bargaining.

Q. ARE THERE ANY ADVANTAGES OF PLEA BARGAIN TO THE DEFENDANT?

Ans: Yes.
• The major benefit to Defendants is the certainty of receiving a less severe charge for a lighter sentence unlike what might have resulted from a conviction after full trial.
• Saves time and expenses of lengthy trial. Defendants who engage private counsel rather than counsel from Legal Aid, Office of the Public Defender or any other Non-Governmental Organization, would definitely save money on legal fees.
• Saves risk of harsher punishment and the unnecessary publicity it could generate.
• Reduces time spent in custody awaiting trial. For Defendants in custody who were denied bail or who cannot perfect their bail, a plea bargain could guarantee a quicker release from custody than a full trial.
• Removes uncertainty of sentencing and gives a higher chance of a lighter sentence.
• Where there is overwhelming evidence that the Defendant is culpable and would most likely be convicted, a plea bargain is a better and more advisable option.

Q. WHO APPROVES PLEA BARGAIN?

ANS: The Honorable Attorney-General of Lagos State approves plea bargain applications from Defendants charged with State Offences.
