Large South African law firms such as Bowman Gilfillan, Adams & Adams, Naude’s and Symington & De Kock exhibited at this year’s Career Fair of the Faculty of Law. During the event, students and exhibitors were addressed by Prof. Jonathan Jansen, Vice-Chancellor and Rector. “Lift your ambition, study hard and aim high,” he told the students.

“Factors such as political loyalty and race should not matter to you as students, but rather passion and dedication for the field in which you will work. As students you should have a different work ethic. Work differently and work harder,” Prof. Jansen said.

Prof. Johan Henning, the Dean of the Faculty of Law said the higher admission requirements and mathematics as a compulsory subject means the calibre of law students at the university cannot easily be equalled. “We develop the best of the best here at the UFS,” he said.

Representatives of the law firms were impressed with the calibre of students at the Career Fair.
