About the publication
The Constitutional Court Review, an initiative of Constitutional law of South Africa (CLoSA), the Department of Public Law at the University of Pretoria and the South African Institute for Advanced Constitutional, Public, Human Rights and International Law (SAIFAC) is a once-a-year journal dedicated to the analysis of the Constitutional Court’s decisions of the previous year.
Its purpose is to provide a platform for high-level academic engagement with the jurisprudence of the South African Constitutional Court.
To this end, each issue of the Review contains two lead essays exploring broad themes arising from a given year’s jurisprudence (each ± 20 000 words), each with its own response (± 5 000 words); a number of shorter subject-specific articles (each ± 10 000 words); and several case comments that engage more narrowly with a given decision of the Constitutional Court (each ± 5 000 words).
About the editors:
Stu Woolman is Professor at the University of the Witwatersrand
Theunis Roux is Professor at the University of New South Wales
Danie Brand is Associate Professor at the University of Pretoria
