Acta Juridica 2008 to come out of the Department of Private Law

16 Oct 2008 - 16:18

The theme for this year's edition of the Acta Juridica is 'Dignity'. The collection of essays, which will be edited by Professor Drucilla Cornell and Dr Jaco Barnard-Naude is based on papers presented at the highly successful Dignity Conference, held at the Faculty on 26th and 27th of July 2007. The conference saw papers presented by a number of judges from the Constitutional Court, Supreme Court of Appeal and High Courts as well as prominent international and local legal scholars. The event coincided with the 2007 Ben Beinhart Memorial Lecture given by Professor Jeremy Waldron of the New York University School of Law.
