Teaching Constitutional Law


Teaching constitutional law in an ever-changing environment requires that the teacher should be up-to-date and well-versed in contemporary literature and thinking. Unfortunately, the quality of the teaching of constitutional law in African Universities is often poor: uncritical and seriously under-resourced.

This is not only due to limited access to up-to-date material, poor library facilities in general but also poor training in the teaching of the subject. Many of the universities still uncritically follow programmes that were drawn up more than 20 years ago and have hardly been revised to take account the recent literature and changes in emphasis in the teaching of the different components.
