About the publication

The Pretoria Student Law Review is a student-run law journal, aimed at offering student researchers the opportunity to participate in discussions and debates about the law. In addition to material produced by students at the University of Pretoria, articles and contributions from other faculties in South Africa and abroad will be considered for publication. The approach is experimental, investigative, sometimes challenging. Not conventional.
