Do You Want to Contribute Towards Building A Transformed South Africa Which Respects and Protects Fundamental Rights? Do You Want to Learn More About Human Rights and Social Justice? Do You Want to Study at The Historic Constitution Hill, Where the Constitutional Court Is Located At?
Register for the LLM on HUMAN RIGHTS at the UJ Faculty of Law which offers the following outstanding elements:
PROGRESSIVE: The LLM will examine the most current developments and academic writing on fundamental rights and seek to address the future of fundamental rights in South Africa and Africa.
GLOBAL: The LLM will examine fundamental rights in a global context, with consideration given to International Law as well as foreign case law.
TRANSFORMATIVE: The LLM will consider the way in which fundamental rights in South Africa are designed to transform our society, and will consider both the practical and theoretical methods of doing so.
FACULTY: The course will expose students to a range of guest lecturers, from judges to practitioners.
LOCATION: The lectures will take place on the historic Constitution Hill which itself represents a bridge from a past of repression and inequality to a future of social justice, freedom, and equality. The Constitutional Court Library is a marvelous resource which students will be encouraged to use. Johannesburg is, of course, the city that raises many questions relating to constitutional democracy in South Africa, and the urban environment will be used as a backdrop against which to explore these issues.
