PRECEDENTS OF PLEADINGS
In the words of the late Lord Denning formerly master of Rolls in the forward to the twentieth edition of Bullen, Leake and Jacobs Precedents of Pleadings on when he used to draw pleadings.
“... I used to have Bullen and Leake by me.' We have adapted some of the precedents in Bullen and Leake on Pleadings to suit the Nigerian situation and law.
We have also used pleadings in respect of cases tried in Nigerian Courts. We have tried to provide a system of draft pleadings that should assist the pleader in the preparation of his claim, defence and other applications in court.
