Title:Reconstructing law teching programmes in developing African countries
Author:Hiller, Jack A.
Periodical:East African Law Journal
Geographic term:East Africa
Subject:legal education
Abstract:Although the role of law in national development is recognised everywhere, in some places the roles and responsibilities of some legal institutions and law trained persons have not been fully realised. One example is the creative role that appellate courts can play, though the East African Court of Appeal has made some progress in this area. The surest way to see that these roles are played creatively is to provide education which will produce responsible knowledgeable, creative persons. This is exposed in the following sections: Whom are we training? (For what roles? What shall we teach? Skill training: How are we teaching?) - What obstacles confront us? Notes.
