Product description

This book introduces students to the distinct legal traditions that make up the South African legal system.

South Africa's official legal system comprises a number of distinct legal traditions: a common-law mix of transplanted European laws, as well as traditional community laws, collectively known as customary law, while aspects of the personal laws of Hinduism, Judaism and Islam are being increasingly recognised. This book introduces law students to the rich and complex legal culture that underpins our constitutional democracy.
