At Law Digest, our mission is to assist in the development of legal capacity in Africa. We aim to do this by publishing professional journals, and organising training events and seminars. The in-house Law Digest team is supported by an Advisory Board made up of eminent African and international jurists.
- We aim topromote study, research and analysis on legal matters of particular interest and relevance to African countries and to foster the development and dissemination of law in Africa. In addition, we will encourage and promote intellectual debate and exchanges on legal issues of particular interest to Africa and its peoples and to foment the establishment of networks among African lawyers as well as between the latter and lawyers of other continents and contribute actively to the promotion and building of the rule of law in Africa, in general.
With the creation of the Law Digest, we have thus embarked on a wider enterprise in the service of our continent and its peoples, for we believe that the advancement and promotion of law, and of the rule of law, are integral to the development of Africa.
