The law to be administered by the Supreme Court, the High Court and any courts in Zimbabwe is provided for in the Constitution of Zimbabwe. This provides for the application of both the law received at colonization and also customary law (mainly applicable to indigenous Zimbabweans.) As a result Zimbabwe is considered a plural legal jurisdiction. Although the constitution of Zimbabwe does not specifically mention Roman-Dutch as the law that was received at colonization it is generally accepted that it is the law that was in force in the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope on 10 June 1891, with some graftings of English law. The aim of the study is to review the current status of Roman-Dutch law as a source of law in Zimbabwe and to assess its application and continued relevance as a source. Given that Roman-Dutch law is part of the general law of Zimbabwe special focus will also be given to its relationship with customary law, often noted to be problematic due to conflict of law problems inherent in legal pluralistic jurisdictions.
