Part I of II
This collaborative two part series was inspired by my friend and colleague, Eyitayo Ogunyemi, LL.B, B.L, Attorney and Human Rights Advocate in Lagos, Nigeria.
This is part I of II which applies to Phoenix, AZ laws, in the USA.
Eyitayo Ogunyemi has written Part II, which applies to Lagos, Nigerian laws.
