The Dean of Law and his team, together with the Faculty Management Committee, the Faculty Office, the Dean's Advisory Committee and the Faculty Board (and its subcommittees), manage the academic, research and administrative business of the Faculty while maintaining UCT Law School's position as the best on the continent.
The Faculty is committed to ensuring that we undertake engaged scholarship and research, deliver top quality legal education so that our graduates are appropriately skilled, and that we are able contribute to the development and practice of Law into the future.
“As we think about new and innovative ways of teaching, the Law Faculty recognises the significance of the links between law and technology - at the level of both research and teaching. We plan, in the next few years, to establish: a combined degree programme that will draw LLB students from information systems, mathematics or computer science; postgraduate programmes in law and technology; and a core skills course in law and technology for LLB students.”
