In order to maximize the resources available to the organization, PWAN works with the Chief Judges, Supervising Judges and Registrars of courts that are open to collaboration and approve access for the observers to be placed in the courts. For the purpose of identifying the specific courts, the project team and the judges adopt a purposive sampling methodology to select the courts that are being observed.
A total of 25 observers have been deployed across 25 High and Magistrate courts in Lagos State. The designated courts are in Ikeja, Apapa, Badagry, Ejigbo, Igbosere, Ijede, Isolo, Surulere and Ogba.

Court Observation commenced on 5th March 2018. The data presented today is from June - September 2018 with comparisons being made with data from the last quarter (March – May 2018). The observers were in court Mondays to Wednesdays every week from the date of commencement of the observation this quarter. This means each observer was in court at least for 25 days within this observation quarter, except in situations when the courts were on vacation. Magistrate courts were typically observed for more days (556) than High courts (30) due to the fact that High Courts observed their extended annual vacation from 5th July to 17th September during this period.
