Abstract:The conference was attended by lawyers from the United Kingdom and from many of the African territories within the Commonwealth as well as from Liberia and the Sudan. The co-existence of English, customary and Islamic law in the same territory gives rise to problems of extreme complexity. The conference sought to examine the existing position, and through discussion, to fromulate the goals to which future policy should be directed, both in general terms and in relation to specific aspects such as practice and procedure, land tenure, personal law, and criminal law, In addition there is section on legal education.
