Posted on April 09, 2021

Professor Elsabe Schoeman, Dean of the Faculty of Law, and Professor Frans Viljoen, Director of the Centre for Human Rights, cordially invite you to celebrate and honour the life of and pay tribute to Professor Christof Heyns.

The sudden and tragic passing of Professor Christof (Christoffel Hendrik) Heyns on Sunday, 28 March 2021, is an enormous loss to his family, friends, UP Law, academia, and the global human rights movement. He will be truly missed by us and so many others across the world.

Professor Christof Heyns was the epitome of advocacy, dedication, humanity, inspiration, passion, teaching and trail-blazing transcending international borders. 

Kindly refer to the attachment for a detailed invitation.  More information will be added to this webpage in due course, including the programme of the event.
