Purpose

ability to master at an advanced level the current state of specialised knowledge on a given topic within a particular branch of the law and to provide a sound training in research methodologies.


Admission Requirements

The minimum entry requirement is an LLB degree (or equivalent qualification) at NQF Level 7 or 8 and a minimum number of credits of 624. Candidates for admission to Master’s degrees in general need to have obtained their previous degree with an average mark of at least 65%. 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 Master’s 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 a student on the basis of the academic merit of the student, the research proposal submitted by the student and the ability of the Faculty to provide appropriate and continuous study guidance and supervision. Work prescribed in law modules is in English and in Afrikaans. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that he/she is able to understand the prescribed work in both languages.
