Abstract: 

In the paper which I contributed to the symposium, Changing Law in Developing Countries (London, 1962), “Legal development and economic growth in Africa”, I made the following basic points: (1) Economic growth in the developing African countries depends on capital accumulation and the stimulation of trade, investment and productivity. Hence the paramount importance of the laws in those countries governing investment, commercial enterprise and the grant of credit.
