University of Cape Town Faculty of Law
The UCT Law Faculty has a rich history of excellence, not only in its teaching and the quality of its graduates, but also in its research output and impact.
Kindly refer to the Law Faculty Handbook for detailed information on course offerings for this academic year. Irregularly, we will post special course registration announcements here for information.
Registration open for LEGAL PRACTICE COURSE (DOL 4500F/S) :
The Legal Practice Course (DOL 4500F/S) affords students the opportunity of receiving a full credit for community service, in fulfilment of the current LLB curriculum requirements. Many students taking final year courses may be interested in the Legal Practice elective, as an important course for every law student, particularly if you are intending to practice. For those not intending to practice, it is equally important in showing how justice works or does not in our country.
Many of our past students go on to do their articles and have confirmed how this course has helped them. There will be information sessions before 2019 registration – do watch your emails. A fundamental function of the UCT Law Clinic is the excellent practical training it offers to senior law students through the Legal Practice Course (DOL 4500F/S).
