Abstract:States that formal Local Courts did exist all right, but they were peripheral rather than central to the judicial process, and to the conflict-regulatory process in general, and such conflictws as most deeply concerned and aroused local communities, were hardly subject to formal litigation in these courts. First argues these statements concerning the Nkoya legal system, qualifies them in the light of the actual occurrence of Local Court cases under specific conditions. After an attempt to interpret the Nkoyal legal situation against the dynamics of their village society, the Nkoya to the Central Lozi and other Central African groups are briefly compared. Notes.
