Africa and Law
Developing Legal Systems in African Commonwealth Nations
Edited by Thomas W. Hutchison, et al.
With an Introduction by A. Arthur Schiller
At the close of colonial rule African law was characterized by the overall presence of a plurality of legal systems. As a consequence, a host of difficult problems in fashioning national legal systems are confronting the emergent nations. The problems of administration of justice described in this volume have significance beyond the borders of the individual countries concerned and will serve to portray those of almost any of the new African states.
