Twelve Years of Legal Education In Zimbabwe
MetadataShow full item record
In the twelve years since Zimbabwe attained its independence in 1980, a number of attempts to transform and improve legal education have been made. Until 1990, Zimbabwe had only one University, the University of Zimbabwe. Since then, two more Universities, the National University of Science ad Technology in Bulawayo and the Methodist Africa University in Mutare, have been established. The two new Universities are still in the process of construction and therefore offer a very limited range of programmes. Law is only offered at the University of Zimbabwe and is unlikely to be offered at the other Universities for a while. Thus, any discussion of legal education in Zimbabwe is restricted to the experiences of the former Department of Law and the present Faculty of Law at the University of Zimbabwe.
