This chapter summarises the book’s key findings and narrative. It highlights the similarities between the challenges to an independent judiciary during colonial rule and then amid the growth of executive authority in the late 1960s and 1970s. It also asserts that this book’s approach to assessing the decolonisation of the High Court of Tanzania—especially its emphasis on the High Court’s place in the structure of the court system and judicial personnel—could be applied to other former British colonial high courts to provide insight into how these enduring institutions functioned as part of the colonial state and were integrated into post-colonial states.
