Why is commercial law important?
Commerce is at the core of a democratic society and, in order to be strong economically, it must be attractive to businesses.
One way of doing this is to have a strong set of laws and regulations protecting businesses that enter into agreements with others and providing resolutions when things don't go to plan. Commercial law provides that platform.
Most commercial disputes are heard in Commercial Court and the higher courts which are the Courts of Appeal and the Common Court of Justice and Arbitration of the OHADA (CCJA).
It should be noted that in DR Congo, all disputes between traders are heard exclusively by the Commercial Court.
