The Founder of the Legal Publishing firm, D.S.C. Publications and
Editor in Chief of all its existing publications was the late DEJI SASEGBON Esq, SAN.
He was appointed a Senior Advocate of Nigeria in September 2004, having been called to the Bar as a
Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria in 1980.
He founded his Law chambers Deji Sasegbon and Co in 1986, soon followed
by his legal publications firm, DSC Publications (the “Firm”).
The Firm is a pioneer and leader in Law publishing in Nigeria,
replete with law publications covering all areas of Nigerian Law.
With over 110,000 ranked lawyers in Nigeria, the primary goal of D.S.C. Publications is to
overcome the dearth of legal publications in the Nigerian market. This is particularly in
relation to the actual practice of law and the application and knowledge of the laws and procedures
relevant to ensuring compliance and good practice. Secondly, it’s aim is to provide qualitative,
user friendly, relevant, educative and indispensable legal publications. The firm has found that
the question/answer format within its publications has been particularly useful as a research tool
for the preparation of judgements, briefs and legal opinions, not only for Judges and lawyers
but also for students of law, aspiring practitioners of law, and legal advisers in commercial
and multinational institutions.
The Firm’s publications are highly appreciated and sought- after. They are an indispensable addition to
most law libraries of Judges, lawyers, tertiary institutions and indeed anyone needing to have a thorough grasp of
the practice and content of law in Nigeria.
In addition to its existing titles, D.S.C. Publications launched in November 2019 another
‘first of its kind’ in Nigeria: SASEGBON’S JUDICIAL DICTIONARY OF NIGERIAN LAW (SJD)
in 7 volumes. It focuses on the statutory and judicial interpretation of words and phrases
within Nigerian legal principles. The dictionary makes use of Nigerian Statutes
(Primary and Subsidiary Legislations) and Cases to explain key terms in the Ratio Decidendi of cases.
It attempts to rival Black's Law Dictionary of England into becoming the most authoritative and
comprehensive law dictionary ever published, certainly in Nigeria.
Other titles published by D.S.C. Publications are;
- NIGERIAN SUPREME COURT CASES (NSCC)
- NIGERIAN COMPANIES AND ALLIED MATTERS LAW AND PRACTICE (CAMA)
- SASEGBONS LAWS OF NIGERIA (SLN)
- SASEGBON ON ELECTION PETITIONS (SEP)
