Reviews - What do customers think about Comparing American and British Legal Education Systems: Lessons for Commonwealth African Law?

Book reviews by Professor G.N. Muuka, PhD and P.T. Takoukam, PhD  Apr 10, 2007
"This book comes at an opportune time when many universities in Commonwealth Africa are looking at ways in which to respond and adapt to challenges posed by the competitive global market. Law schools in Commonwealth Africa are not an exception... The book will stand as an authoritative text to all who are interested in the development of legal education in the common law world. This book is a strong addition to the frontiers of academic debate regarding the quality of postgraduate legal education in different common law jurisdictions. The depth and breadth of the book's coverage assures the reader of balanced views on important aspects of the common law as it relates to different regions of the world, propelling the book to useful knowledge addition at a critical juncture in legal debate." - Professor Gerry N. Muuka, PhD, Professor of Management and Senior Assistant Dean, College of Business and Public Affairs, Murray State University, Murray, KY, USA.

"In this path-breaking book, Dr. Kenneth K. Mwenda provides the reader with an excellent and first-class treatment of critical issues surrounding the development of legal education systems in Commonwealth Africa, drawing valuable lessons from the UK and the US. The book is well-written, with balanced and objective analyses. And the book is informed, in part, by the author's valuable experience as a former academic in the UK and Africa, and also through his professional exposure to the US legal system... This book comes highly recommended to anyone interested in the future of legal education and the future of the legal profession in common law jurisdictions. There is certainly a dearth of literature for law schools to consider when developing law degree programmes to meet the challenges of the new millennium. And this book not only fits the bill, but it also fills the lacuna relating to the dearth of literature for developing sound postgraduate law degree programmes in common law jurisdictions." - Patrice Talla Takoukam, PhD, Counsel, Legal Vice-Presidency, the World Bank, Washington DC, USA.
