The article deals with the mixture of French, Moslem, and customary legal traditions constituting the legal systems of the Comoros and Djibouti. They are both extremely small jurisdictions in terms of legal resources and depend to a large extent on foreign legal models. They provide an example of how such jurisdictions may combine Western legal thinking with deeply rooted principles of Islamic law.
