  • A region of great diversity, Sub-Saharan Africa (“SSA”) is burdened by and, in some instances, afflicted with a variety of socio-political and legal contexts. For instance, there is a mixture of authoritarian, military, and democratic administrations. Africa is also diverse in terms of its people, religion, normative values, colonial experience, political systems, economic systems, physical environment, and the cultural legacy of colonialism. Managing litigation and other legal issues in the U.S. could be challenging enough; doing the same in SSA is certainly a hair-raising adventure at best.
