Join Professor Avinash Govindjee and Dr Lynn Biggs as they take you on a journey to explore the Faculty of Law of the Nelson Mandela University.

The Faculty of Law is much more than meets the eye, and more than the sum of its parts. Distinctive without being boutique, it is focussed on delivering high quality law qualifications, while making its own particular contribution to the legal landscape.

The Faculty of Law contributes to the institution’s vision of being a dynamic African university, recognised for its leadership in generating cutting-edge knowledge for a sustainable future. The Faculty continuously strives to maximise the learning possibilities for law students and boasts highly respected academic staff and committed support staff who combine to provide a top-quality educational experience for law students. It also seeks to equip graduates with the necessary attributes for a successful career in law.

The Faculty also contributes to advancing social justice and equality through its unrelenting efforts to exemplify the values of Nelson Mandela in its curricula, student support, scholarship, and engagement with the legal profession and broader society.
