Study for Master of Law in South Africa

Faculty of Law Stellenbosch University



The Stellenbosch Law Faculty itself was established in 1921. Initially the Faculty focused on LLB degrees, training and equipping students, not merely as legal practitioners, but also as jurists. Graduates of the Faculty include judges, advocates, attorneys, business people, politicians and academics. In 1976 the LLM degree (by thesis) was awarded for the first time to two students.  The Law Faculty introduced the Master of Laws programme (LLM by course work) in 1995.  A wide variety of modules is offered (see paragraph 14 below). The purpose of our LLM is not only to enable law graduates to specialise, but also to afford them an opportunity to concentrate on current issues brought to the fore by societal transition and constitutional and other recent developments, including South Africa's resurgence as an important trading nation. In 1999 a distance education programme in International Trade Law was introduced, enabling students country-wide to study in this exciting field, while contact time is facilitated by satellite broadcasts to centres across the country.
