The Faculty of Law is one of the oldest Law Faculties in the country and was the first to have a full-time Professor of Law. Successive law graduates have served with distinction in law, commerce and industry, not only in Southern Africa, but also in other countries. At the first-year level the Law Faculty offers all students an integrated academic development programme aimed at bridging the gap between school and university.
Small group teaching and learning in tutorials assist students in realising their full academic potential. The Faculty offers three degree programmes
- the LLB,
- LLM and
- PhD degrees.
Students who wish to broaden their education are encouraged to do so, and are able to follow a five-year programme during which they will obtain two degrees for example a BA, BCom or BSc as well as an LLB.
