Introduction

The Faculty of Law is committed to excellence in teaching and to delivering jurists to the professions with qualifications of international renown.
Legal education will open doors to a wide variety of professions, including the advocate’s profession, attorney’s profession, legal advisors, labour consultants, prosecutors, magistrates, and the insurance and banking industries.
The faculty is renowned for research of international standing, and is also involved in community service, where the UFS Law Clinic and several centres in the faculty play a major role.
The faculty enjoys close ties with several international law schools and law faculties, especially Britain, Europe, and the USA.
The faculty is proud of its alumni association consisting of former law students who remain loyal to the faculty, and the Collegium Iurisprudentium, an advice panel for the faculty.
