We have highly regarded academics in our ranks, some of whom were involved in drafting the Constitution of South Africa, which is considered to be one of the most progressive in the world.
Our graduates are well regarded by employers, as we educate high-calibre legal professionals who are ready for the work place, while at the same time striving to equip our graduates with a social consciousness which encourages them to stand up for justice and fairness.
Our environment and high academic standards prepare you for the challenging environment of the competitive legal world.
We have all the systems in place to ensure that you have enough support to help you graduate on time. For example:
- We supplement classroom teaching with online materials, so that you can revise and improve your understanding of key concepts.
