In Africa, only a few tech entrepreneurs embrace the legal sector. Yet, legaltech solutions will be very useful for the broader dissemination of all kinds of legal frameworks governing every type of person, protecting against abuses, and defending rights. 

Legal Doctrine is a digital solution developed by an Algerian startup. It allows users to access legislation, regulations, and court decisions from several Francophone African countries. The legaltech startup behind the solution is based in Algiers. Founded in 2018 by Walid Ghanemi, it wants to ensure that every African business and institution has transparent access to the laws it is governed by.  

“Legal Doctrine transforms a wide range of data into exploitable information that allows decision-makers and practitioners to monitor all legal news daily,” the platform indicates. 

Through its Android or iOS apps, users can set up their Legal Doctrine accounts to test the platform with the free trial option or request subscription information.  

The legaltech builds up its legal library with the jurisprudence of Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Senegal, Côte d’Ivoire, and Cameroon.

“Thanks to its powerful indexing and search by keywords features, Legal Doctrine’s Legal Search engine allows you to quickly identify the most relevant legal information on which you can elaborate your strategy,”  the solution explains on its platform. Its platforms are localized in English, French, and Arabic. Currently, it claims some 4,000 subscribers, over one million searches in 2020, and 15 million in 2021. On Playsotre, its Android app has been downloaded more than 5,000 times. In 2018, Legal Doctrine won the “Best African Legaltech Startup” in Zurich. In 2019, it won a similar award in Tunis.
