- University of Limpopo Law Week Conference
The School of Law has, for a number of years, successfully hosted Law Week conferences. The Law Week is an event on the University calendar not to be missed by lawyers eager to share and gain information on the law relating to socio-economic development in South Africa and the rest of the African continent. Every year, the Law Week places a contemporary law theme on the table for delegates to discuss and critique through conference presentations.
The Law Week also provides a forum where young aspiring lawyers from the academy and learned professions are given the opportunity to participate in critical academic discourses. Law Week conference papers are especially enriched by non-legal experts who add a multi-disciplinary flair to legal discourses. Law Week papers are often published in our Turfloop Law Review. Besides, the Limpopo Leader magazine also covers proceedings in a special edition at the end of every Law Week.
The School of Law extends a warm invitation to everyone who would like to present a paper, participate in the deliberations of the Law Week or share information with others to contact Adv K Mojela or the Director of the School of Law, Adv R Letšeku, at telephone number 0152682686 or at email@example.com in order to attend the forthcoming Law Week usually scheduled for the first week of September each year.
- Association of Lawyers for Africa’s Development ( ALAD)
Over time Africa has developed many legal institutions and tools to aid it in designing solutions for development challenges. These institutions however require skilled lawyers to manage and sustain them. The time has therefore come for all lawyers who are interested in and concerned about law and development to join a network of lawyers committed to the promotion of law and development in Africa. This is the rational and background against which ALAD was conceptualised in 2007.
The main aim of ALAD is to create an opportunity for lawyers to learn from each other and to exchange information about the legal framework for the developmental processes in Africa, the African Union, the various new pan-African tribunals, NEPAD as well as regional economic development communities.
Law students, judges, solicitors, advocates, other legal practitioners, legal academics and legal advisers are all invited to join ALAD. Membership is free. Soon, ALAD will host its first annual LAW AND DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE during which a steering committee will be formed and a proposed constitution will be finalised and adopted.
The School of Law serves as the headquarters of ALAD.
