UFS contributes to prevention and combating of crime
2007-03-08

The Faculty of Law at the University of the Free State (UFS) is going to establish an Institute for Judicial Excellence to make a decisive contribution to the prevention and combating of crime in the country.

This announcement was made today (Wednesday 7 March 2007) after the Symposium on Violent Crime by Judge Faan Hancke, one of the presiding officers of the symposium and Chairperson of the UFS Council. The symposium was presented by the Faculty of Law on the UFS Main Campus in Bloemfontein.

“This institute will have a multi-disciplinary approach which will not only involve the Faculty of Law, but also expertise from the Faculty of the Humanities and the UFS School of Management. Each of the role players will focus on a specific area,” said Judge Hancke.

According to Judge Hancke the Faculty of Law will focus on the training of lawyers involved with the administration of justice such as magistrates and prosecutors in Southern Africa, the Faculty of the Humanities will focus on research on the causes of crime and the UFS School of Management will focus on supporting the South African Police Service (SAPS) with management training.
“This proposal has already been approved by the Faculty’s Council and will now be put before the UFS Council,” said Judge Hancke.
