About the publication

The rationale behind the cover design was that ‘in a world of chaos, we will always find ourselves guided by laws’. Whilst this may be the ideal for which we strive, this is by no means one that is easily achieved. Just a glimpse at the articles in this edition of the Pretoria Student Law Review reveals various areas of the law which require attention. The PSLR remains committed to providing an active forum for students from any university, from South Africa and abroad, to voice their opinions and engage in critical legal debate.
