2017 Faculty Specific Orientation Programme:  2 and 3 February 2017 (as on 30 January 2017)
Please note that attendance is compulsory of the full programme as set out at the link above for all LLB, BCom Law and BA Law First Year Students commencing their studies for the first time at the University of Pretoria in 2017.


Seen from one perspective, the Faculty of Law consists of staff, students and the building. It is, however, also much more than that: It represents an idea, namely the idea of a society governed by the rule of law and not by individuals. Our Faculty pursues this idea by focusing on the law and on excellence in all divisions of jurisprudence. It is also pursued by focusing on jurists and by preparing our students to become leaders of their communities where they can promote the law and its principles effectively.
