Abstract

Legal transplantation is not a recent phenomenon. Besides, legal
transplantation happens everywhere. Once transplanted, laws may be
implemented effectively or partly, or disregarded altogether. In
Ethiopia, the EIA Law is the result of legal transplantation because
evidence shows that the government enacted the law due to some
external factors. Yet, at the moment, the law is implemented although
its implementation is selective. On the other hand, such selective
implementation of a transplanted law can eventually lead to the total
disregard of the law.
