    Background: LEGAL DELEGATIONS FROM 22 AFRICAN COUNTRIES -- SOME LED BY THEIR MINISTERS OF JUSTICE -- GATHERED IN LAGOS YESTERDAY (MONDAY) FOR A FOUR-DAY CONFERENCE. THEIR AIM -- TO SET UP A COMMISSION OF AFRICAN JURISTS. APPROVED LAST NOVEMBER BY A 12-NATION DRAFTING COMMITTEE AT ADDIS ABABA.

    THE COMMISSION INTENDS TO ENCOURAGE THE STUDY OF LAW, ESPECIALLY AFRICAN CUSTOMARY LAW, AND THE STUDY OF LEGAL PROBLEMS HOLDING COMMON INTERESTS. MEMBERSHIP WILL BE OPEN TO ALL INDEPENDENT AFRICAN STATES AND ALSO TO THOSE HAVING INTERNAL SELF-GOVERNMENT.

    NIGERIANS ATTENDING THE TALKS INCLUDE MRS ADUKE MOORE. A LAGOS LAWYER, AND SIR ADETOKUNBO ADEMOLA, THE COUNTRY'S CHIEF JUSTICE.

    OPENING THE CONFERENCE, THE NIGERIAN PRIME MINISTER, SIR ABUBAKAR TAFAWA BALEWA, SAID ITS AIM WAS "LAUDABLE" SINCE IT SOUGHT TO ENSURE ORDERLY GOVERNMENT AND THE RULE OF LAW IN AFRICA. HE SAID THE NEW COMMISSION MIGHT BE ADOPTED AS THE "LEGAL ARM" OF THE ORGANIZATION FOR AFRICAN UNITY.
