Virtual Launch of the Journal of African Law (JAL) - Special Issue on COVID-19 and the Law in Africa

The Special Issue contains articles dealing with the intersection between COVID-19 and the Law in Africa. Drawing on examples across the region, the papers in this Special Issue discusses the relationship between COVID-19 and various aspects of the law. This Special Issue and contributions thereof provide a unique opportunity to examine a wide array of legal issues at various levels – local, national, transnational, subregional, regional – both doctrinally and empirically. The contributions, inter alia, interrogate the adequacy of legal frameworks; the way the AU, governments and institutions have responded to the specific challenges resulting from, and associated with the outbreak of the pandemic; factors influencing compliance; the emerging case law of national courts; and the impact on vulnerable and marginalised groups.
