Our principal sources are undoubtedly found in the collections of our sister company, LexisNexis Butterworths South Africa, which provides not only comprehensive content for the Republic of South Africa itself, but also for many neighboring jurisdictions, even as far north as East and West Africa. In addition to these, our many other resources for the African nations are set forth below. LexisNexis France also provides some content for Francophone West Africa (see OHADA, below).
