University Of Cape Town Faculty Of Law

We, the staff and students of the Faculty of Law of the University of Cape Town, recognize that we are a community of scholars, striving for excellence in all that we do. We are conscious of the fact that we are part of broader South African society, and also the African and international academic community. We acknowledge the role played by the law in creating a society that was characterized by oppression and remains deeply divided by inequality. We commit ourselves to the following goals:

  1. teaching and research which is of the highest quality
  2. developing all staff and students to their fullest potential
  3. promoting an institutional culture founded on mutual tolerance, respect, understanding, integrity, and openness – one which values our common humanity and which celebrates and promotes diversity.

In the pursuit of all these goals, we hope to contribute to redressing the inequality and disparity that continues to exist within South African society. They recognize that the realization of these goals requires:

  • Scholarship that is critical and compassionate, and which explores the potential of the law as a means to achieving justice for all;
  • Leadership that is effective and promotes the values of the faculty;
  • Accountable, inclusive, and transparent decision-making in which staff and students are given the opportunity for effective participation;
  • The open and critical debate that protects and promotes academic freedom and university autonomy;
  • Provision to staff and students with opportunities and resources necessary for their optimal development.

We will strive to live these values and achieve these goals in our daily activities and exchanges with one another.
