It is often said that a good lawyer is not the one who knows all the law, but where to find the law. The question then is where do we turn to, if we want to determine the applicable legal principles and rules to a particular commercial problem? For instance, if Mr. A wants to go into a business of sale and purchase of petroleum or gun, he might contact a lawyer to advise him on whether the business is lawful and the necessary steps to be taken in order to get it going. This brings us to the discussion of the sources of business law in Nigeria. To a layman, all the rules of law are contained in a big bookcalled "the Constitution". This is however erroneous. Rather, law Introduction to Nigerian Business Law consists of multifarious rules, which can be found in several primary and secondary sources discussed below. The word 'source' is used in this context as the fountain where legal rules and principles of business law are derived. These could be in form of materials, documents or books usually consulted for information by lawyers and judges or providing initial inspiration on the applicable rules of law.
