Elias, The Nature of African Customary Law (1956a), p. 275. 1954–1960) Elias’s initial legal interventions on the African scene coincided with the populist inquiry as to whether there was anything like African customary law – whether it was law at all or just a hotchpotch of desultory, discordant, and ever-changing customs. Understanding the challenges he was facing and the background theories against which he was writing is crucial to the hybridity of his narrative. Accordingly, I begin this part by sketching a very brief history of the evolution of African law and institutions arising from the colonial encounter and, particularly, of the role and place of customary law administered in British dependencies and, specifically, Nigeria, since this was the context most familiar to Elias and on which he wrote most extensively.
