Law Faculty Focus: Law in Africa

Some of the world's oldest legal systems began in Africa. In the north, the ancient Egyptian kingdom used a civil code, founded on the idea of Ma'at, the cornerstones of which are tradition, rhetorical speech, social equity and impartiality. Today, many legal histories and traditions – some local, others imported with colonialism – create the warp and weft of law in Africa, informing everything from marriage and mining to intellectual property and gender rights. Helen Swingler looks at some of the work UCT's law scholars are doing in Africa.
