The Law Faculty boasts of rich tradition and since its inauguration in 1921. Various prominent alumni have made deep impressions on society; both in South Africa and globally. We believe that the Faculty must continue to with this prestige, and educate alumni of excellence. This, however, is comprised of two important tenets: the most qualified and accessible academic staff, who will in turn create a welcoming space in which we can deliver the best achieving students. Or, to put it in another way: what must we do to educate the next Judge President?
To assist requires a great deal of additional funding. This necessity led to the creation of the Trust in 2013. Currently, trust capital is at R42,2m, due in large to the contributions of alumni and friends of the Law Faculty. Our aim is to have amassed R100m by the centenary in 2021.
