The UCT Law Faculty hopes to appoint a number of LLB graduates to act as teaching assistants during 2018.
As a teaching assistant you will be expected to tutor LLB students, carry out a certain amount of marking, and assist the students in your classes. In the Commercial Law Department you will also be involved in the courses that the department offers to non-law students. In addition you will be expected to fulfil a number of administrative responsibilities, including the invigilation of exams and tests (outside ordinary work hours).
Although this is a full-time position, you will be given substantial time in which to pursue your own research interests. We strongly encourage TAs to register for graduate research degrees; candidates who plan to do so will be given preference in the selection process.
University of Cape Town students and staff who are Vodacom subscribers will now have free internet access following the decision by the mobile network provider to zero rate a number of academic sites.
Having already zero rated the charge to key basic education sites and career portals, Vodacom announced, on 27 September 2017, that it has taken a decision to zero rate services to universities for students and staff who are Vodacom subscribers. This in a bid to help address cost challenges associated with access to education content and remote learning for institutions of higher learning. Through this approach, Vodacom has already enabled 19 of the 23 South African universities, including UCT, with free internet access.

This is strong testament to Mogoeng’s standing in the public eye, and to his reputation as our Chief Justice.
