TuksLaw lecturer selected as Intercontinental Academia fellow
25 October 2017
The Faculty of Law at the University of Pretoria is proud to announce that one of its lecturers, Dr Willem Gravett from the Department of Procedural Law, has been selected to participate as one of 17 fellows in an Intercontinental Academia (ICA) on Laws: Rigidity and Dynamics.
Fellows of ICA are regarded as the leaders of tomorrow. The UBIAS Intercontinental Academia is an exciting opportunity for young researchers from all over the world to engage with topics of fundamental relevance.
ICA seeks to create a global network of future research leaders by constructing an arena in which the very best early/mid-career scholars work together on paradigm-shifting, cross-disciplinary research, mentored by some of the world's most eminent researchers. A key aspect of the endeavour is deriving the full benefit of its intercontinental origins and the diversity of thought and culture that brings. This immersive and intense experience is expected to transform the scholars' own approaches to research; to enhance their awareness of the work, and the relevance and potential impact of other disciplines; and to inspire and facilitate new collaborations between distant disciplines. The aim of ICA is to create a real, yet volatile, intellectual cocktail that leads to meaningful outputs.
The partners of this fellowship are:
