The South African Law Reform Commission in partnership with Juta Law is calling on young legal minds to submit articles championing law reform in South Africa into the 2018 SALRC Legal Essay Writing Competition.

The competition encourages critical legal writing by students while generating new ideas for law reform. These ideas should be aligned to South Africa’s priorities as a developmental state and be aimed at keeping the law abreast of developments in society and in tune with the needs of South Africa’s diverse population and national priorities.

Essays can be on any topic relating to the modernisation, improvement, development or reform of any aspect, area or branch of South African law. Entries should be in English and be between 4000 to 6000 words in length.

The competition is divided into two categories and is open to registered LLB and LLM students respectively at a South African University or tertiary institution, in any year of study.

Entries for the 2018 competition close on 31 January 2019. For more information click here or alternatively follow the competition page on Twitter or Facebook.
