The Botswana Legal System
Select a format
This second edition of The Botwana Legal System is updated to 2013. It provides a history of the Botswana legal system and places it in the context of other major legal systems. The book also sets out the sources of law in Botswana, and gives an in-depth description of the court system (which has been extensively reformed in recent years), the legal profession, legislative process, and the interpretation of legislation. This book is well suited as a general reference work for both law and non-law students in Botswana, and a useful introduction for foreign practitioners who seek to understand the key differences between Botswana's legal system and their own.
