‘The Future of African Customary Law’ book Published

The Leitner Center proudly announces publication of The Future of African Customary Law (Jeanmarie Fenrich, Paolo Galizzi & Tracy Higgins eds., Cambridge University Press 2011).  The Future of African Customary Law considers the characteristics of customary law and efforts to ascertain and codify customary law, and how this body of law differs in content, form, and status from legislation and common law.  It also addresses a number of substantive areas of customary law, including the role and power of traditional authorities; customary criminal law; customary land tenure, property rights, and intestate succession; and the relationship between customary law, human rights, and gender equality.
