It does not matter whether you choose an LLB, a BCom Law or a BA Law, you will have access to support from your faculty, and to some of our tailored programmes which will help you land your first job or start your own business.
You’ll be able to adjust to the world beyond university, as you’ll have the high quality of teaching and learning that is part of THE UP WAY of life. This means you’ll be able to use your skills to have a positive impact on South Africa and the world, and use your critical thinking skills to innovate and be a well-rounded, ethical individual who’s an asset to society and the workplace.
Many of our alumni have reached the apex of careers in law, some serving as judges in the high courts, the Supreme Court of Appeal and the Constitutional Court, where they are playing a significant role in the execution of justice. A number of graduates have also taken up important positions in government.
Our academics worked closely on developing South Africa’s internationally acclaimed constitution, and are still very prominent role players in the legal sphere. If you register for one of our legal programmes, you’ll be able to follow in their illustrious footsteps too and achieve your own personal best.
