In My Own Liberator, Dikgang Moseneke pays homage to the many people and places that have helped to define and shape him. In tracing his ancestry, the influence on both his maternal and paternal sides is evident in the values they imbued in their children - the importance of family, the value of hard work and education, an uncompromising moral code, compassion for those less fortunate and unflinching refusal to accept an unjust political regime or acknowledge its oppressive laws. As a young activist in the Pan-Africanist Congress, at the tender age of fifteen, Moseneke was arrested, detained and, in 1963, sentenced to ten years on Robben Island for participating in anti-apartheid activities. Physical incarceration, harsh conditions and inhumane treatment could not imprison the political prisoners' minds, however, and for many the Island became a school not only in politics but an opportunity for dedicated study, formal and informal. It set the young Moseneke on a path towards a law degree that would provide the bedrock for a long and fruitful legal career and see him serve his country in the highest court. My Own Liberator charts Moseneke's rise as one of the country's top legal minds, who not only helped to draft the interim constitution, but for fifteen years acted as a guardian of that constitution for all South Africans, helping to make it a living document for the country and its people.

Clinical legal education (CLE) is a springboard for entry into legal practice, preparing students for the professional challenges they will face after completing their studies and embarking on their legal careers. In her eight years of conducting research on CLE in South African universities, the author has found that the most urgent needs are in the area of student assessment. Designing a curriculum with assessable content is therefore essential for clinicians who, in certifying students' capabilities, are the gatekeepers to practice. This book identifies curriculum requirements across a number of jurisdictions, and proposes a menu of assessment methods, which may enhance the choices of assessment methodologies available to South African university law clinics. It also covers the setting of parameters for assessment, grading, grade descriptors and moderation systems, and discusses different forms of tests, assignments, essay- and oral-examinations, as well as self- and peer-evaluation, peer editing, case portfolios, and trial advocacy skills. The book addresses challenges such as clinicians' heavy workloads and differing levels of experience in supervision and assessment. It discusses challenges students face and presents solutions enabling clinicians to help them depending on their individual experience and needs. Also discussed are the potential conflicts between the needs of students and those of the local community being served by the law clinic. Although the aim of this book is to find appropriate assessment methods for CLE, the effectiveness of an assessment programme can only be determined when measured against a curriculum. The proposed curriculum is therefore measured against the identified assessment criteria. CLE Lecturers can download assessment forms, checklists and rubrics from the Juta Law website - visit https://juta.co.za/support-material/detail/clinical-legal-education for details.
Hoteliers, restaurateurs, licensees and catering managers will, in the course of their work, enter into many legal relationships with other parties whilst at the same time being required to adhere to all of the statutory laws that apply to their business. A sound knowledge of the law is therefore important to the professional owner or manager, as are knowledge of business management and the fundamental skills of the profession.

Supervision of Local Government discusses the role of national and provincial governments in supervising the functions of local government. The book analyses the legal status of local government, which is entrenched and protected by the Constitution, and examines the powers of the national and provincial governments to supervise local government. Supervision of Local Government explores international practices in the supervision of local government and investigates general trends in the supervision of selected municipalities in South Africa. Shortcomings, inconsistencies and irregularities in the supervision of local government are identified. The book discusses the concept of `supervision' as it relates to local government in its broad sense, which includes monitoring, intervening in and supporting local government. Supervision of Local Government also explores the manifestation of the principles of cooperative government and subsidiarity in the supervision of local government by national and provincial governments. Cooperative government requires that the other spheres of government intervene in local government to assist municipalities in managing their own affairs, while the principle of subsidiarity requires that services should be rendered at the lowest possible level of government. Thus, the national and provincial spheres have a duty to support the local sphere of government in fulfilling this duty and this duty is analysed in the book.
The news of successful model Reeva Steenkamp’s fatal shooting by her boyfriend and global sporting star Oscar Pistorius stunned the world. Over the ensuing weeks, as Pistorius appeared in court and applied for bail, every detail that emerged was analysed, debated, justified and digested. South Africa and the world in general were haunted by the events as they were repeated and discussed at length. Public perception vacillated from version to version and from hour to hour.
Behind the Door is a compelling narrative that unpacks the true facts of the story, as revealed in the courtroom and beyond during the murder trial of Oscar Pistorius and as told to the authors in several exclusive interviews and behind-the-scenes briefings. It looks at the characters involved, relates the courtroom interactions and dramas, the construction of each side’s argument, the analysis of forensic and circumstantial evidence and exchanges between the personalities, as well as a broader look at violence and criminal justice in South Africa.
Vivid and gripping, insightful and authoritative, Behind the Door is the book to read on the Reeva and Oscar story.
Guardian's Best Non-Fiction, 2019 The Tablet's Highlights of 2019 Personality tests. Team-building exercises. Forced Fun. Desktop surveillance. Open-plan offices. Acronyms. Diminishing job security. Hot desking. Pointless perks. Hackathons. If any of the above sound familiar, welcome to the modern economy. In this hilarious, but deadly serious book, bestselling author Dan Lyons looks at how the world of work has slowly morphed from one of unions and steady career progression to a dystopia made of bean bags and unpaid internships. And that's the 'good' jobs... With the same wit that made Disrupted an international bestseller, Lyons shows how the hypocrisy of Silicon Valley has now been exported globally to a job near you. Even low-grade employees are now expected to view their jobs with a cult-like fervour, despite diminishing prospects of promotion. From the gig economy to the new digital oligarchs, Lyons deliciously roasts the new work climate, while asking what can be done to recoup some sanity and dignity for the expanding class of middle-class serfs.
Hierdie is die vyfde uitgawe van die boek wat vir die eerste keer in 1992 as 'n relatief bondige teks, spesifiek gemik op studente in die erfreg, verskyn het. Die boek het egter deur sy opeenvolgende uitgawes tot 'n meer algemene bron vir die Suid-Afrikaanse erfreg ontwikkel. Tog is dit deur sy aanslag, aanbiedingswyse en sistematiek steeds ideaal om ook as handboek in erfregkursusse gebruik te word. Die huidige weergawe poog weereens om aan die leser 'n omvattende oorsig oor die verskillende fasette van die erfreg te gee, met inagneming van die jongste ontwikkelings wat hierdie regsgebied beinvloed het.
Class Action Litigation in South Africa is the first book to be published in South Africa dealing with this area of the law. The book collects, describes and interrogates the first-class action judgments in South Africa, aiming to go beyond the existing and ground-breaking Supreme Court of Appeal and Constitutional Court judgments on class actions, and makes practical suggestions regarding the issues that are likely to arise for practitioners, judges and academics as they encounter class actions in South Africa. Class Action Litigation in South Africa seeks to ensure a home-grown understanding of class actions for our country, but also offers the reader first-hand exposure to lessons learnt from international experts in class action litigation. The book thus embraces contributions from around the world that are wide-ranging, straddling the fields of law, economics, social justice and politics. The book presents important and useful insights into class action litigation from local and international experts. The editors and the contributors have all been involved in the leading class action cases in South Africa and abroad.
E.T. Meyer matrikuleer in Windhoek, gaan studeer in Suid-Afrika en gee daarna by verskeie skole in die destydse Suidwes onderwys. In sy drie bundels kortverhale, Die vlieende Ovambo, Waar’s my Tande en Tussen krokodille en Kavangovroue herroep hy die ligte kant en verrassende situasies wat hy destyds in hierdie ruwe omstandighede teegekom het.
Gerrie Radlof se gewilde Oloff die Seerowerreeks is oorspronklik tussen 1957 en 1961 uitgegee en het daarna reeds vier uitgawes beleef. Die verhale, wat in die 1740's afspeel aan die Kaap de Goede Hoop en die seewee daarom heen, is verwerk om aan te pas by die moderne taalgebruik en aan te sluit by die hedendaagse tiener, maar niks van die oorspronklike sjarme en spanning het in die verwerking verlore gegaan nie. Ook geskik as leesstof vir Afrikaans tweede taal vir ouer leerlinge.
Housing Association Law is the definitive legal guide providing a comprehensive picture of the law affecting housing associations and social landlords. Originally published in 1987 (as Housing Association Law: The Law of Social Landlords, and subsequently as Housing Association Law and Practice), LAG is pleased to be releasing the first new edition in 15 years of this renowned title by Dr Christopher Handy and Professor John Alder. This is the only book that deals exclusively with housing associations and social landlords from a multi-disciplinary perspective, bringing together material from all the relevant branches of the law: public, housing, corporate, charity and tax law. The new, fully updated edition of Housing Association Law comes at a time when housing associations are increasingly important and are neglected in the legal literature. Housing association law is often treated as a marginal topic, buried in the footnotes and lacking distinctive principles. In fact, ever since local authority housing development was killed off late in the last century, housing associations have become the main providers of social housing in the UK with a corresponding growth in government regulation of the sector. They have been regarded as a bridge between the public and private sectors, a position that has become increasingly fuzzy. The book aims to provide a framework for the housing practitioner and lawyer working in or with the sector. It also seeks to provide an introduction for students. For those already acquainted with social housing law we hope to provide perspectives and insights demonstrating how the law has evolved and developed in this rapidly changing sector. We try to identify the principles and rules peculiar to housing associations and to highlight other areas of law which have a distinctive application to the sector. Practitioners specialising in this area of the law, housing associations, local government departments, voluntary housing bodies and housing association members will find that this book is indispensable. It will also prove invaluable to students studying housing law and those with an interest in urban studies.

'Everyone should read Down Girl. It should be distributed in schools and every board room, athletic department and legislative space' - Soraya Chemaly A powerful, lucid analysis of how misogyny works from a remarkable philosopher Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it's often misunderstood. What is misogyny exactly? Who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist - or increase - even when sexist gender roles are waning? In Down Girl moral philosopher Kate Manne argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. Rather, it is primarily about controlling, policing, punishing and exiling the "bad" women who challenge male dominance. And it is compatible with rewarding "the good ones" and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order. An incredibly forensic analysis of the logic of misogyny from a brilliant thinker, Down Girl is essential reading for the #MeToo era.
Charles Oertel bevind hom in ’n netelige posisie. Hy is ’n skatryk Vrystaatse boer en het sentimente jeens beide magte wat tydens die Anglo-Boereoorlog slaags raak.
