Legal System

Rwanda’s legal system is based on German and Belgian civil law systems and customary law. The Ministry of Justice must approve all attorneys who enter private practice. The Kigali Bar Association is an independent body that governs all advocates in the country. Only members of the bar are allowed to argue before a court, although membership of the bar association is not required for private practice. Admission of advocates is restricted to citizens of Rwanda who fulfil the prescribed conditions, but foreign lawyers may provide advisory services. The leading law firms and private practices are primarily based in Kigali.
