The AFRICADROIT network has come into existence as a result of the meeting of lawyers who, in the course of their practice, have come to question the role of law in the development process. They have set themselves a goal to help with the development of law as a motor for the development of Africa and the well-being of the African people. They are independent, since they do not belong to any large groups, or networks that are essentially at the service of these groups, they share the idea that law and the State of law are factors that are essential in the development and the freedom of the African people.
The acronym AFRICADROIT (Francophone Association for the Strengthening of Integration and Skills in Africa through the Law), has been retained to symbolize this idea. However, its putting into action presupposes a system of communication and information that enables the exchange of knowledge, experiences and the practices of the legal systems of these countries.
This is how the idea of an Information Letter of Africalaw has come into existence, and for the time being on a quarterly basis, seeking to identify and analyze, in a summary manner, the principal developments that have occurred in the legal domain. The Letter will focus, in particular, on business law, economic public law (Public-private partnerships, public markets), branches of law applicable to sectors such as the extractive sector (oil, mines…..), transportation, and to transversal questions (tax, customs, labour) impacting upon these sectors, or linked to the regime and to the guarantee of investments, in short, a dimension of law that favours the emergence of the continent.
Beyond its vocation to spread the culture of law and to ensure the transmission of information regarding legal experiences and legal innovations in Africa, this Africadroit letter aims to be the tool for a network of legal practitioners which enables its members to develop between them a series of services, operating as a form of cooperative, on the one hand, and to adapt as close as possible to the reality, their activities as lawyers, whether advice, training or defense, on the other hand.
Starting from the Francophone region of Africa and, specifically, the OHADA region, AFRIDROIT aims, in a second phase, not to limit itself to this region and, on the contrary, to extend towards Anglophone and Lusophone countries, just as the linguistic and cultural barriers must be overcome for the benefit of a mutual enrichment that improves the legal cultures of one another.
