Our First Copy of South Sudanese Law

Share this post:

You may remember that in my July 9, 2011 post, I discussed the measures that the Law Library of Congress has taken in response to the birth of South Sudan. These included creating a Guide to the Laws of South Sudan page and getting our overseas offices to start collecting South Sudanese laws.

On August 3, 2011, we received our first copy of South Sudanese law (the Code of Criminal Procedure Act 5 of 2008), courtesy of the U.S. Department of State and I thought you might like a peek.
