Libya has been plagued by various issues that have been repugnant to the attainment of the required levels of democracy. Traditions and norms applicable in the region have affected the nation in such a manner that the majority of the people has turned out to be less receptive to the attempts to align them to the international standards of human rights . The tradition of the people living in Libya has also been of great influence on the delayed development of the justice system that is both effective and applicable . It is impossible for one to look at the traditions of the Libyans without looking at the religious effects on the human right systems. Lack of a centralized system for dealing with the civil issues has also been a major source of the deterrents to justice.

The presently used customary system has been taunted as the most ineffective in the attainment of the justice since there is no central command over the process and the very people that could be determining the causes may be the offenders.

In some areas, customary means of dispute resolution in Libya work, but the differences in the application of the sharia law can be seen as the major issue that has made the customary law application less effective. The paper will point out the areas where the local enforcement of the civil law has failed with a special focus on the main causes for the failure of the law system in Libya. The paper will also focus on the efforts being made to ensure that the legal system in Libya is more effective. It will also present an array of solutions that can be used in the creation of a more effective legal system that has wide acceptance in the country.

[...] The above research questions will be integral in the creation of an understanding of the legal systems in Libya and the barriers to the attainment of the required or desired land rights. The research questions are not exhaustive hence the need to expand them in the course of the research to accommodate the contingencies. The research will be conducted in a contextual manner with modifications on the research questions being made to suit the understanding and interests of the respondents. [...]
