Interesting article on the role of the legal system in African development.

And it is a heavy responsibility. Lawyers in Africa working within government have to draft their countries’ laws, work with business to create the conditions where they can operate successfully, and ensure that social justice and human rights are enshrined in legislation. They are, in many ways, mapping out the future of their countries.

This video reinforces the importance of laws for Africa. This video deals with the issue of land ownership. Many African conflicts are happening over land rights because legally it hasn't been clearly established who owns what when it comes to land.
