Abstract

A personal account of my time (1967-69) on the Faculty of Law, University of Dar es Salaam. At the time the Faculty of Law was the only law school in Eastern Africa. The Faculty struggled with formulating a curriculum appropriate to the existing circumstances and governing political values. Ultimately the curriculum drafted was not adopted, largely because it was seen as overly influenced by expatriate members of the Faculty of Law.
