Ward: Building Free Access to Law in Africa: Some Examples of Successful Projects

Ruth Ward of Webber Wentzel has published Building Free Access to Law in Africa: Some Examples of Successful Projects, Legal Information Management, 14, 290-300 (2014).

Here is the abstract:

Ruth Ward explains how open access to legislation in Africa is a much more recent development than in the developed world. Several recently launched projects are well underway, and are contributing towards promoting justice and the rule of law in Africa. Access to legislation facilitates great transparency and access to the law for the promotion of trade and investment; and supports the resulting economic development on the continent. Several different approaches to establishing projects which deliver reliable consolidated access to legislation are illustrated, and show that successful projects can be established and maintained on modest budgets by very small teams.
