The Dean's Fund
Why we need your help
The Faculty of Law has been successfully challenging and training the legal minds of our country since 1921 and remains the intellectual home of many judges, advocates, attorneys, captains of industry, entrepreneurs, business leaders, politicians, activists, and academics.
Together we can continue to lead in scholarship, research and learning, to make a significant impact on South Africa and indeed the international community for the next 100 years and beyond.
We are calling on you, fellow alumni of our Faculty to support the Dean’s Fund. Your gift, no matter how small or large, to this important fund will ensure access to the esteemed Matie Law education by directly supporting our current and future students.
- Undergraduate Law Bursaries: To support students who are academically deserving but financially disadvantaged to graduate and ultimately qualify as legal practitioners or enter other related careers. In particular, those students who do not qualify for NSFAS bursaries due to being part of the “missing middle” or because they are registered for a second degree (i.e., registered for the LLB degree after completion of the BA (Law), BCom (Law) or another 3-year degree programme).
- LLB Postgraduate Bursaries: To support students who are academically deserving but financially disadvantaged to research relevant legal questions and contribute to the generation of knowledge.
- SU Law Clinic: Supporting practical legal training of Maties law students and the impact litigation fund to ensure the ability to intervene in cases capable of effecting important and widespread societal change.
Your gift to the Dean’s Fund will make a positive impact by providing students the critical resources when they need them. Moreover, it will empower the Faculty to immediately intervene and make a positive change in our community.
Fellow Maties and friends, please join us in supporting our law students and enabling them to pursue their dreams. This community will feel the positive impact of your donation today and for many years to come.
