Within the broader context of the vision as an excellent, equitable, and innovative university, the faculty strives to:

  • constantly be recognised nationally and internationally for the quality of its activities and to maintain and expand the achievements of its students and staff;
  • continuously have a national and regional perspective in order to maintain its operations;
  • to contribute, within its own context, to the reconstruction and development of the entire community.

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 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 is also involved with community engagement, where the UFS Law Clinic and several centres in the faculty play a direct and major role.

The faculty enjoys close ties with several international law schools and law faculties, 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.
