Prospective Students

You are obviously interested in studying Law otherwise you wouldn't be on this page!

Then the question is, why UCT? We have not only a wonderfully diverse student body but an outstanding group of academics which believes that our LLB is among the best in South Africa, and recognized as such throughout the world.

We enable you to use legal materials effectively, we teach you to assess, interpret and apply the law and, most importantly, we equip you with the historical, comparative and jurisprudential background that is essential for a critical understanding of law and legal institutions.

Indications are that the majority of you will become advocates and attorneys; about a quarter of you will undergird the financial & commercial sectors; 11% will provide legal services to Government and the rest will serve the values of justice in academic life and non governmental organizations.
