The purpose of this qualification is to let students demonstrate an ability to make an own, distinctive and novel contribution to the corpus of knowledge on a particular subject of legal study.
The minimum entry requirement is an LLM degree (or equivalent qualification) at NQF Level 8 or 9 and a minimum number of credits of 892. Candidates for admission to doctoral degrees in general need to have obtained their previous degree with an average mark of at least 65%.
The Board of the Faculty may require students to submit to an oral examination on set study material to demonstrate their competence for doctoral research before they are admitted to the qualification.
The relevant Head of Department may permit an applicant to register as a student for purposes of receiving guidance with, and use the facilities of the University for, the preparation of a research proposal. This does not create an expectation that the student will be admitted to doctoral studies and such registration is provisional pending the approval of the admission of the student by the Board of the Faculty of Law. The Board of the Faculty of Law approves the admission of the student and recommends to the Senate Higher Degrees Committee of the University the title of the thesis and the supervisor(s) on the basis of:
– academic merit of the student;
– prior qualifications obtained by the student;
– the merit of the research proposal submitted to the Board; and the availability and competence of a member of faculty to promote the study.
