This book is the culmination of a three year research study focussing on the creation, management, disposal and research use of legal records of all kinds throughout the Commonwealth. It provides, by means of thematic papers and specific country case studies, a general picture of the current treatment of legal records within various jurisdictions and to suggest solutions to some of the more vexed problems of their disposal. The book addresses three different audiences; lawyers, academic researchers and archivists/records managers. It seeks to spread awareness of developments in records management among legal circles; of the financial realities of records disposal among academic and other users of legal material; and of changing concepts of the scholarly relevance of legal records among archivists. This book is the first of its kind in its scope and coverage of the theoretical and practical problems facing the creators and custodians of legal records and should serve as a stimulus, a resource and a starting point for detailed consideration of those problems in a variety of contexts.

The book is intended to be a contribution to comparative knowledge on what a final and constitutional court’s role and significance are to governance in a developing country. It provides a recently retired judge’s insights into the substantive work and function of the Supreme Court in Ghanaian society and Ghana’s legal and political system. The book throws light on the role played by the Supreme Court in the development of Ghanaian law and the laying of the foundation for Ghana’s constitutional democracy. The establishment of a constitutional democracy in Ghana has been an important factor in the nation’s development and the Supreme Court has had an important role to play in this process. It will also be invaluable to both academic and practising lawyers, as well as at non-lawyers interested in the function and operations of the Supreme Court. The study of the Supreme Courts of emerging democracies should be given some emphasis in comparative law. It is hoped that the material contained in this book will contribute to the facilitation of such emphasis.
