Inaugural lecture: Judge Fritz Brand
2006-03-10

Judge Fritz Brand, Judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal and for the past ten years involved in training High Court judges, delivered his inaugural lecture, titled Latest developments in liability for omissions and for pure economic loss at the University of the Free State (UFS), this week.

 

With reference to case law judge Brand demonstrated that a confusion of ideas often exists when determining the concepts of wrongfulness and negligence. His striking inaugural lecture contributed to clarify this matter.

 

At his inaugural lecture was from the left Prof Johan van Schalkwyk ( Head of the UFS Department Private Law), the honourable appeal court judge Fritz Brand (professor extraordinary in the Department Private Law at the UFS), the honourable judge Faan Hancke (from the Free State High Court and chairperson of the UFS Council) and Prof Johan Henning (Dean: Faculty of Law at the UFS).
