Abstract: „Traditional‟ Justice as the term suggests, refers to the cultural practices that lies outside th eoperation of the state. It gains its popularity and legitimacy from practices and beliefs since time immemorial, its existence is before the arrival of the modern state set up. It marks its presence and existence mostly in post-colonial countries. Its existence in the present is antique, in the sense that the legacies of small self-regulation „stateless‟ at one point of time is still surviving even at this point of time side by side the modern state and the national legal system. The one thing that needs to be considered is that tradition system is inherently dynamic and not static and absolute phenomena, it is subject to change and modification according to the changing nature of the society it prevails. The maintenance of peace and harmony at the local, village is the primary role that the traditional justice plays, among the communities. In the management of disputes and conflicts, it often exhibits a character of restorative on the basis that the parties had to live and continue to live together in a relatively tight-knit and interdependent setting in a society.
