Public Law in East Africa

By: Musa Ssekaana
Published By LawAfrica
Format: Paperback

This text is a comprehensive examination of the law and practice of the public law in the East African region. However, there is some comparative analysis undertaken to buttress the text in a number of areas by reference to United Kingdom, Barbados, Malawi, Zimbabwe, Sri lanka India and South Africa. It is a central tenet of the 20th Century legal realism that law exists principally in those junctures at which individuals are faced with the immediate possibility of State power intruding into their lives. The success of democratic institutions and economic developments in the East African region requires not only good systems of law but also law enforcement mechanisms, favourable investment climate, protection of citizens rights and the convergence of legal systems. Public law is crucial in the process. This book depicts the various ways in which the East African Courts seek to protect citizenry against the abuse of State power and exercise of discretion by public authorities through the powerful tool of the judicial review. Contents Include;

  • Constitutional Fundamentals
  • Judicial review
  • Locus Standi

  • Commissions of Inquiry
