Algeria flag Algeria: Business Environment

Business law in Algeria

Legal Framework

Independence of Justice
Judicial power is not fully independent in Algeria. Judges are often subjected to disciplinary measures or other repressive measures on the part of the government.
Equal Treatment of Nationals and Foreigners
The Language of Justice
Recourse to an Interpreter
For a court case it is particularly recommended that you resort to the help of an interpreter/translator, as all the exchanges take place in Arabic (the official language). However, most magistrates and lawyers speak French, as well as Arabic.
Sources of the Law and Legal Similarities
Algerian law has various sources: the Constitution, laws voted by Parliament, ministerial decrees and orders, international conventions and treaties ratified by Algeria.
There are legal similarities with all the countries whose law has come from Roman law, and only partly from Muslim law.
