Over the last few years, the Faculty has been home to a number of students who have received a prestigious Mandela Rhodes Scholarship.
The most recent recipient, a member of the Mandela Rhodes Class of 2020, is Jeremy Alan Phillips - who has just completed his final year of his LLB. According to his bio on the MRF site, Jeremy is "committed to working towards a more equal and just society... he intends on using his legal knowledge and dedication to humanity to help build such a society."
UCT Law's 2017 Mandela Rhodes Scholarship recipient was Shamila Mpinga, who led the UCT Law Postgraduate Law Students Council while completing her LLM in Mineral Law. After a rigorous national selection process, Mpinga was then awarded the Rhodes scholarship to study for an MSc in law and finance and an MBA at the University of Oxford in the UK - where she is currently based.
