Course: Bachelor of Arts (Law)

Bachelor of Arts in Law will enable students to combine a major in Humanities with a major in Law. This will serve as sound preparation for a student who wishes to continue with a two year LLB thereafter. The BA (Law) provides an avenue for those who wish to position their legal education within a broad Humanities and Social Science context, the programme requires a bachelor in NSC qualification.


Requirements: • Minimum NSC requirements for degree entry must be met. • English, Afrikaans or isiXhosa (home language or first additional language) on at least a level 5 (60–69%). • Mathematics 4 (50-59%) or Mathematical Literacy 7 (80-89%)
Job Opportunities: Upon completion of a two-year LLB students will have entry to all branches of the legal profession. Those planning to practice as attorneys or advocates must, after obtaining the LLB degree, follow it up with specialised practical training and a professional examination. There are also career opportunities in the civil service for public prosecutors and public defenders, while legal advisers are employed in business and government. Experienced legal practitioners may be appointed as magistrates or as judges of the High Court
