Summary

This book is a philosophical inquiry into indigenous African legal ethics, asking what is African about African legal ethics?

Taking us beyond a geographical understanding of Africa, the author argues for an African legal ethics that is distinct from non-African African legal ethics which are rooted in Euro-Western constructions. De-silencing African voices on African legal ethics this book decolonizes the prevailing wisdom on legal ethics and broadens our understanding of how law in Africa bears on ethics in Africa or, conversely, on how ethics bears on law in Africa.

This book will be of interest to scholars of African philosophy, philosophy of law and legal ethics.
