The Centre for Law and Society (CLS) is an innovative multi-disciplinary centre in the Faculty of Law where scholars, students and activists engage critically with, and work together on, the challenges facing contemporary South Africa at the intersection of law and society.
Through engaged research, critical teaching and robust exchange, CLS aims to shape a new generation of scholars, practitioners and activists, and to build the field of relevant legal theory, scholarship and practice, that is responsive to our context in South Africa and Africa.
The Centre provides an interactive space to collaborate on solutions to pressing social injustices, and incubates people, ideas and projects to promote justice.

CLS will be hosting the second Law and Society in Africa Seminar Series titled, ‘Casting the first Stone…Leadership and Followership in Underdeveloping Africa’, on Tuesday 31 October from 13h00 until 14h30.
Join us as we engage with arguments around Africa’s decline from the 1960s when successive nations attained independence and discuss whether the continuous underdevelopment of Africa may be attributed to flawed systems or rather flawed leadership and complacent followership.
