The Faculty of Law has a long and proud tradition of excellence in teaching law. Since its inception in 1921, it has produced many of South Africa's eminent legal professionals. Apart from judges, attorneys and advocates, it ranks businessmen and -women, and politicians among its alumni.

Our lecturers, each an expert in their field, keep in close touch with trends in South African society and with developments both in our own justice system and in those of other countries. In this way they ensure that legal education at Stellenbosch is up to date, market-related and career-focused.

Below, after listing some general admission information, we sketch the programmes that prospective students may choose from.
