  • Summary:

    The university town of Stellenbosch is situated between the Boland mountains, in the heart of the Cape winelands. Initially the Faculty concentrated 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 1994. The LLM programme attracts students from far and wide. This includes students from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Kenya, Tanzania, Namibia and Nigeria.
