  • The text addresses living customary law precepts and values, offering an insightful, authentic and sensitive approach to the alignment of parallel systems of South African law. This facilitates an understanding of the true purpose, values and efficacy of customary law, and honours the important role which this system of law serves within South African society.
  • The material is presented in a clear and applied manner, in order that it should be accessible, engaging and challenging to readers.
  • The text's pedagogical framework introduces a dynamic element which stimulates independent critical and reflective engagement with the material, allowing students to engage with moot and contentious issues, whilst maintaining a clear understanding of the theoretical framework.
