About the publication

The third edition of the Pretoria Student Law Review (PSLR) has arrived. The ‘little purple journal’ with its chaotic covers is back, filled to the brim with the legal prowess of those exceptional law students who dared to raise questions and risked finding answers. We certainly hope that you enjoy the fruits of their effort.

As usual, the articles cover a variety of topics, from labour law to legal philosophy, from local issues to the universal. This edition also sports our first article in Afrikaans, one of South Africa’s eleven official languages. A short English abstract accompanies the article.

It has been an exciting year for the PSLR. We have seen more interest than ever before from students who wish to become involved, either as editors or authors. We have focused our attention on giving students the tools they need to produce excellent articles. During the year the PSLR hosted a successful writing workshop and we are in the process of compiling a comprehensive writing guide for those who wish to write but do not know where to start.

We thank you for your interest and support and we trust that you will benefit from and be inspired by those whose contributions are contained within this edition.
