Organisation Profile

The Faculty of Law is a leading faculty of the University of Johannesburg, with strong partnerships and links with leading universities globally. It is a major contributor to the provision of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate students. It undertakes cutting-edge research, with the majority of its outputs published in highly prestigious international journals.

The Department of Continuing Education Programmes within the Faculty of Law serves a vital function in society as it strives to empower those individuals employed by the state and who have either obtained or have aspirations of obtaining their professional qualifications, with the means of enhancing their careers.

The vast array of programmes that are presented by the University of Johannesburg at varying, yet accredited, levels allows for the participants to selectively enrol in those programmes that will not only enhance their promotional prospects but will also equip them to efficiently execute their designated duties to the benefit of society as a whole.

The structural design of each programme by a fully-fledged academic is such that it caters for the demands of the respective professions and, as such, is presented by both academics as well as legal practitioners. The successful graduate obtains an in-depth understanding and analysis of the course material and is equipped to apply this knowledge well beyond the ambit of his or her field of expertise.

Graduates of the programme will confirm a sense of enrichment and achievement on completion of their selected programme, which invariably enhances their professional prospects.
