University of the Witwatersrand, Oliver Schreiner School of Law: Bachlor of Laws (LLB)
University of the Witwatersrand Oliver Schreiner School of Law, Bachelor of Laws (Baccalaureus Legum) (LLB) (NFQ Level 8/Honours Bachelor’s Degree), Passed, 2009-2013
I passed 30 subjects, the maximum I could take without special permission. Non-law subjects passed: English Global Literature and Film, English Literature in Context, and Forensic Medicine. South Africa’s legal system is a hybrid between civil law (European continental system) and common law (used in England and Ireland).
My maternal grandparents, mother, and my sister, attended Wits. I chose to attend this esteemed institution.
In first year, I was unanimously elected class representative in Global English Literature and Film, by several hundred students. I was also the first ever first year to be elected to the executive of a specific political party on campus. In subsequent years, I was continually elected to positions of responsibility and leadership.
I spent much of my free time bettering myself and my general, and specific, knowledge, outside of university, including by means of on-line learning via coursera, and I additionally edited and reported for SACNS as a journalist.
