Our values

  • ACLF believes that access to legal data as well as a functional, fair and politically independent system of commercial courts is a necessary precondition both for a thriving economy and for the development – over time – of the rule of law, human rights and democratic values.
  • While recognising Africa’s diverse legal traditions, we believe that basic rule of law principles are of universal application.
  • An accessible court system which delivers impartial judgements and the timely enforcement of contracts brings real benefits to citizens, commercial enterprises and investors.
  • We believe the most effective method of promoting standards is through the dissemination of objective comparative information.
