The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) in conjunction with prize sponsors Juta Law, are proud to announce the opening of the 2019 season for the South African Law Reform Commission Legal Essay Writing Competition.
The 2019 season honours the memory and legacy of the late Chief Justice Pius Nkonzo Langa who served with dignity and distinction. Justice Langa’s legacy of legal excellence continues to shine as a beacon for future generations of legal scholars, practitioners and jurists.
Drawing on this inspirational legacy, the SALRC invites all law students studying towards an LLB or LLM at a South African University to begin their own journey in the footsteps of South Africa’s legal giants by submitting their innovative ideas championing law reform issues by 31 January 2020.
