Despite the vast literature on transitional justice and everyday justice in South Africa and Uganda, there remains a dearth of exploration into Magistrates' Courts. In our new project, Anna MacDonald and I have been exploring the lives of disputes that enter into magistrates' courts. In this talk, I will be sketching out three scenes from the magistrates' courts, the questions that they raise and the emergent explorations our research provides.
