The Court has been built as a project funded entirely outside the budget of the University and is the result of a dedicated Faculty initiative. The capital cost has been met by a single donation from an overseas benefactor whose desire to remain anonymous has given the Faculty the freedom to choose a name for the Court which in itself confirms the Faculty's commitment to transformation. The Law Faculty's transformation is in accord with the University's mission of being a world class university for Africa. The funders have included an endowment to meet short term operating costs, though it is hoped that the Court will be self-funding.
The Faculty of Law hopes that the funders, secure in the anonymity of their immensely generous donation, share its pride in the realisation of a dream to build a court which will develop advocacy skills and encourage spirited debate, while drawing the Faculty closer to the practice of law and to the achievement of justice and equity for all.
