All our qualifications are accredited by the Council of Higher Education (CHE) and recognized by the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA), the General Council of the Bar (GCB) and all local and international employers of law graduates or legal professionals. Our academic staff is experienced, dynamic, and passionate about ensuring excellence in their teaching, research, and community engagement endeavors.
Our students have consistently recorded good performances at regional and international mock trial/moot competitions - which testifies to the quality of the legal education they are receiving at Fort Hare.
The study of Law on our East London campus will ensure that students have easy access to the courts, law firms, and other important law-related institutions - where they can work part-time, serve as volunteers, or simply attend to observe the law in action.
