The idea for this group arose from a questions we at AfricanLII had received from some new LIIs regarding:
1. Whether there exist guidelines for LIIs in drawing up constitutions?
2. What are the duties and responsibilities of LII staff?
3. Hosting criteria: or how is a suitable host institution selected for the LII?
We realised that these are good questions to be asking but lacked definitive responses. Given the unique context of each LII, this is perhaps to be expected.
