Academic - Faculty of Law


The faculty strives to, within the broader context of the vision as an excellent, equitable and innovative university:
  • constantly nationally and internationally recognised for the quality of its activities and the achievements of its students and staff, to maintain and expand;
  • a national and regional perspective continuously to maintain its operations;
  • within its own context to the reconstruction and development of the entire community to contribute.


With the vision, mission and values of the university as a starting point, the mission of the Faculty is to practice, promote and educate justice conscious jurisprudence.

The Faculty of Law is committed to excellence in teaching and to delivering jurists with qualifications of international renown to the professions.

Legal education will open up doors to a wide variety of professions, including the advocate’s profession, attorney’s profession, legal advisors, labour consultants, prosecutors, magistrates, and the insurance and banking industries.

The faculty is renowned for research of international standing, and also involved with community engagement, where the UFS Law Clinic and several centres in the faculty directly play a major role.

The faculty enjoys close ties with several international law schools and law faculties, in especially Britain, Europe and the USA.
The faculty is proud of its alumni association of former law students who remain loyal to the faculty, and the Collegium Iurisprudentium, an advice panel for the faculty.
