General Principles of Commercial Law is a concise compendium written specifically for non-law students.

The ninth edition has been updated to reflect recent statutory and other developments in commercial law and includes:

  • A revised chapter on credit agreements to reflect recent amendments to the National Credit Act 34 of 2005.
  • A new chapter 24 that deals with various aspects of banking law, including a discussion of selected aspects of both the Banks Act 94 of 1990 and the Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017; an introduction to the principles of indigenous banking law; and the important aspect of financial inclusion.

Interpretation of statutes is about understanding enacted law-texts, that is, making sense of the legislative scheme applicable to the situation at hand. Statutory Interpretation: An Introduction for Students aims to teach students to interpret and apply legislation within the total legal environment.

Part 1 (‘Statute law’) introduces students to the different types and categories of legislation, the structural components of legislation, the sometimes confusing ‘codes’ used in legislative texts, and the challenges of applying old order legislation together with new legislation. Part 2 (‘How legislation is interpreted’) comprises a chapter on the theoretical foundations of interpretation and an overview of the basic approaches to statutory interpretation in South Africa, and a chapter dealing with the practical application of the rules of interpretation. Part 3 (‘Judicial law-making during interpretation, and peremptory and directory provisions’) deals with day-to-day applications, and Part 4 is a basic introduction to constitutional interpretation. Students are also introduced to less well-known aspects of statutory interpretation, such as deeming clauses, the suspension of legislation, sunset clauses, legalese, and the counter-majoritarian difficulty.

The fifth edition of Statutory Interpretation: An Introduction for Students is a user-friendly introduction to the basic principles of statutory interpretation. It is aimed mainly at undergraduate students, but practitioners will also find it useful. The rules and principles of statutory interpretation are explained using hypothetical situations and practical examples from case law and legislation.

Healthcare delivery in the 21st century has become increasingly complex and demanding . Clinical consultations frequently raise scientific, ethical and legal challenges. While scientific issues may be resolved using an evidence-based medicine (EBM) approach, ethical theory is needed to justify decision making in the face of ethical conflict. Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective provides the conceptual background and analytic skills necessary to assist with the resolution of ethical dilemmas encountered in the South African healthcare environment. Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective uses case studies to help the healthcare team to identify and analyse ethical, moral and value concepts, and to apply these to scenarios that they may encounter on a daily basis. Part 1 explores theories and principles of ethics (including African philosophy), introduces medical law, discusses health and human rights, and also makes the transition from theory to practice. Part 2 looks at specific topics in healthcare that raise challenges from an ethics perspective - HIV/AIDS, use of social media, euthanasia, human reproduction, genetics and genomics. In view of the increasing emphasis on ethical considerations in healthcare from the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), coupled with the rising incidence of litigation in healthcare, Medical ethics, law and human rights: a South African perspective is essential reading for health science, law and philosophy students as well as practising healthcare professionals.

In addition, the third edition offers a deeper critical discussion of the relationship between common law principles and the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa.

Scott on Cession: A Treatise on the Law in South Africa is a comprehensive exposition of the law of cession. Scott incorporates aspects of her doctoral thesis (1977), her previous book on cession, The Law of Cession, (1991) and her articles on cession that have been published in law journals. The book focuses on case law, but case law as a source of law in this branch of the law poses particular problems: some of the earlier decisions, and even recent ones, are based on Roman-Dutch law, which no longer completely satisfies current modern needs. To explain certain idiosyncrasies in the case law, Scott refers to the historical development of cession as a legal institution. The book also provides extensive commentary on certain problematic aspects of cession, using comparable legal systems, and incorporates the dogmatic foundations of the law of cession.
