At this master in Private Law at University of South Africa (UNISA) we are guided by the principles of lifelong learning, student-centredness, innovation and stakeholder engagement within the African and global arena.
The origins of Unisa's College of Law can also be traced back to 1873. At that time, the Board of Public Examiners was replaced by the University of the Cape of Good Hope, and the Certificates in Law and Jurisprudence offered by the Board were replaced by the University's Certificate of Proficiency in Law and Jurisprudence and the LLB degree (Bachelor of Laws).
