SALRC Legal Essay Writing Competition

2018 South African Law Reform Commission Legal Essay Competition

The South African Law Reform Commission (SALRC) is engaging young legal minds in generating innovative ideas on issues of law reform. Guided by the wish to honour a range of South African legal achievers, the SALRC is relaunching the legal essay writing competition originally named in honour of the first Chief Justice of the democratic era, Justice Ismail Mahomed.

From 2018, the renamed South African Law Reform Legal Writing Competition will celebrate the contributions of legal luminaries who have dedicated their lives to the advancement of our constitutional democracy.

The 2018 season is dedicated to the memory of the late Chief Justice Pius Nkonzo Langa who served South Africa with dignity and distinction.

Drawing on the inspirational legacy of Justice Pius Langa, the South African Law Reform Commission in partnership with sponsors Juta Law invites ALL law students studying towards an LLB or LLM at a South African University to submit their innovative ideas championing law reform issues into the 2018 South African Law Reform Commission Legal Essay Writing Competition.
