The Partners

University of the Western Cape, Law Faculty (UWC)
The University of the Western Cape is among the most renowned universities in South Africa. The Law Faculty at UWC is one of the very few institutes in South Africa to offer the option of parttime studies alongside its full-time programmes. Undergraduate courses are primarily designed for the training of lawyers, while the postgraduate programme trains experts in various law specialisations.

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Faculty of Law
The internationalisation of legal training is a major feature in the profile of the Faculty of Law at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany. As a result, many international programmes and contacts have been established at the Law Faculty. The many years of cooperation with the University of the Western Cape (since 1993) play a vital role in this respect. Besides the visiting professor and scholar programme for faculty members at the partner university, this cooperation focuses primarily on joint research projects and the exchange of international experts at jointly attended conferences.
