Research and publication play a central role for academic staff and students within the Faculty of Law. Each of the three law departments (Commercial Law, Private Law and Public Law) hosts specialised research units and encourage publication. All research in the Law Faculty is centrally administered by the Faculty's Research Office which serves to advance quality research and ensure conformity with ethical standards.
The Faculty of Law has two research committees: the Faculty Research and Social Responsiveness Committee and the Research Ethics Committee. In addition, a Law Faculty representative sits on the UCT Social Responsiveness and Working Group Committee.

This Committee meets quarterly and functions to promote research in the Faculty, further the well-being of those engaged in research and socially responsive activities, and administer research- related matters in the Faculty of Law.
