Centre for Comparative Law
in Africa
Director: Dr A. Ordor
The Centre for Comparative Law in Africa (CCLA) was
established in 2011 to promote the study of comparative
law and draw on the strengths of comparative methodology
to research into the multifaceted field of law in Africa. The
Centre presents an opportunity to develop a discipline
that lends itself to optimal application in the pluralistic
legal frameworks within which life is lived in Africa. In its
mission to contribute to the development of comparative
law in Africa, the strategy of the CCLA is to establish
the field at UCT, build capacity in it across the continent
through academic programmes, apply comparative law
expertise in consultancies and disseminate new knowledge
in comparative law in Africa through conferences,
publications and professional networks. Its location
within the Department of Commercial Law recognises
