LLB Graduation 2019

Date Released: Thu, 11 April 2019 20:05 +0200

The Faculty hosted a celebratory garden party for our LLB graduates on 11 April 2019. 

The Dean, Professor Rosaan Kruger, started the event with warm words of welcome addressed to our graduates and their families. Professor Kruger reminded our students to pause and celebrate this milestone; and thereafter proceed with life, "cognisant of the responsibility that comes with the influence of legal education from Rhodes University". She also encouraged our graduates to stand up for justice and for the dignity and equality of all. The evening was ended with an awards ceremony to acknowledge our graduates' individual achievements.
