    The objective of the paper is to present narratives from legal information institutes (LIIs) in various stages of development from across Africa. Representations are made here from Kenya, Uganda, Malawi, Swaziland, the Seychelles, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. Within each of the narratives there lie significant lessons, which provide the basis for a regional community of African legal information institutes to share their knowledge with each other.
