Max Gluckman was a well-known Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester, and the former Director of the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute.
One of his studies concerned the highly-developed judicial process in Barotseland, which was intended to continue following the creation of modern Zambia, with no appeal to Zambian courts for domestic matters under the Barotseland Agreement 1964. The International Arbitration Attorney Network represents Barotseland with respect to the determination of the legal status of Barotseland under public international law.
From the norm of the reasonable man, to sources of law, the social background of litigation, the structure of Lozi courts, the laws of nations, and the assessment of evidence, his study shows the sophistication and depth of this highly-developed judicial system.
