This is a special edition of the Malawi Law Journal ('MLJ'), featuring the revised versions (after peer-review) of some of the papers presented at a conference held to celebrate two landmarks: the coming of age of the Constitution of the Republic of Malawi ('Constitution') and five years of the MLJ. 2012 was a rather peculiar year for any form of celebration in Malawi. The second President of the Republic of Malawi in the democratic era, Dr Bingu wa Mutharika, died unexpectedly in April that year, after a period of deep political ruptures, rising insecurity and economic turmoil in the country precipitated by the increasingly dictatorial tendencies of the then ruling party, the People's Democratic Party ('DPP').
