A Brief Overview of the Togolese Legal System


Online guide to Togo law written by Thérèse Donu who is an attorney at law at the Togo Bar Association and a founder of Therese Donu Law Firm. The guide was published in 2022 on the Globalex website and made freely available by the Hauser Global Law School Program at the New York University School of Law. The author explains the Togolese legal system which is based on national laws and the laws of various regional organisations including the Organization for the Harmonization of Business Law in Africa (OHADA), the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Togo has inherited the civil law tradition based on the French model and the guide gives an overview of the various codes. There are links to government and other legal websites. A French version of the guide is also available on the Globalex website.
