De Beer is also an extraordinary lecturer in UP Law's Department of Public Law.

An excerpt from the Editorial refers to their joint contribution as follows: 

‘In the second part of the Yearbook, Aniel de Beer and Martha Bradley analyze the 2018 decision of the International Criminal Court’s Appeals Chamber in Prosecutor v Jean-Pierre Bemba Gombo. Their contribution “Appellate Deference Versus the De Novo Analysis of Evidence: The Decision of the Appeals Chamber in Prosecutor v Jean-Pierre Bemba Gombo” focuses on the International Criminal Court’s procedural and evidentiary law issues and criticizes that the Appeals Chamber has analyzed the evidence of the case de novo in order to arrive at a conclusion different from the one reached by the Trial Chamber’.

A proud UP Law Dean Professor Elsabe Schoeman thanked Drs Bradley and De Beer for ‘their hard work and keeping UP Law on the international map where it belongs’.
