Zimbabwe’s Constitution of 2013 provides for multi-level government at national, provincial and local level. This book explores the nature, evolution and future of this multi-level system of government against the background of international best practices.
Provincial and Local Government Reform in Zimbabwe: An analysis of the Law, Policy and Practice considers key questions about the multi-level system of government and shows how it radically differs from the old Lancaster House constitutional order.
The roles that provincial and local governments, as well as traditional leaders, fulfil in the new order are examined, the reforms needed to implement the system are outlined, and lessons to be learnt from other countries with multi-level governments are considered.
This book aims to aid the realisation of Zimbabwe’s constitutional goals of development, democracy and peace through effective multilevel governance and contributes to the international discourse on decentralisation and the role of subnational governments in Africa.
The South African Schools Act 84 of 1996 aims to make high-quality basic education accessible to all South African children irrespective of race and geographic location in the country. Written by significant role-players and members of the judiciary, Pathways to Successful Schooling reflects on the journey of South African schooling over the past 20 years. This book was prompted by the 2016 Schools Act symposium, Schools Act @ 20: Charting the Way Forward, which celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Schools Act. Looking at education since 1996, this book considers practical alternatives for addressing contentious matters. Unique to this work is the inclusion of the first ever analysis of the background to the drafting of the Schools Act. Pathways to Successful Schooling gives perspectives on dreams, expectations and realities. It reflects on what became of the vision of the Education White Paper 1 and the Schools Act. An international dimension is added by the discussion of constitutional changes and values in the context of the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. The book also looks at legislating for the realisation of children's rights and offers the view that, although the Act has set the pace, broader efforts will enhance children's rights in South Africa.
The Law of Landlord and Tenant revisits the law of landlord and tenant in light of the constitutional context to determine how this area of law has developed, especially since the pre-1994 era, to further constitutional goals.
The purpose of the volume is to place legislation, case law, academic analysis and policy considerations in the context of the constitutional framework within which private law rights are acquired, exercised and transferred or lost, but also add to existing academic commentary some sections of foreign law where the comparison might provide insight to the South African landlord-tenant context.
South African criminal law has accepted that it is only fair to punish those who - if they do wrong - are responsible for doing wrong. Responsibility - that the accused must be blameworthy - finds expression in several specific requirements of South African criminal law: voluntariness, fault, and, in particular, capacity, into which the `insanity' defence falls. The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law critically analyses these requirements, and includes an empirical component in this analysis. The book also identifies and critically analyses the underlying model of responsibility adopted in our law and considers the alternatives. The conclusion from the empirical component and critical analysis is that the specific requirements are unclear and even incoherent, and that this is a function of the underlying model of responsibility, which identifies random capricious and arbitrary conduct as responsible conduct. Alternative models of responsibility are discussed, and a `compatibilist' model of reason sensitivity is selected as a better foundation for criminal responsibility. The Responsible Mind in South African Criminal Law discusses the implications of adopting this model for the various specific requirements of South African criminal law and proposes appropriate modifications. Ultimately a new model of criminal responsibility and a revised set of specific requirements are proposed, together with a proposed new statutory test for responsibility.
Principles of Market Abuse Regulation: A Comparative South African Perspective arguably offers the most comprehensive study of the regulation and enforcement of anti-market abuse laws in South Africa today. Accordingly, the book examines the regulation of the South African securities and financial markets to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the country's anti-market abuse laws. In this regard, the book provides that inadequate and inconsistent regulation of the securities and financial markets could give rise to low investor confidence, market volatility and poor market integrity. The author traces the regulation of market abuse under the Financial Markets Act 19 of 2012 and recommends measures that could enhance the combating of market abuse in the South African securities and financial markets. The Financial Sector Regulation Act 9 of 2017, which is set to expand the mandate of the Financial Services Board, is also considered. The global financial crisis of 2007-2009 provides context for the book. Events covered include South African and American international banks' collusion and market manipulation involving price-fixing, market allocation and rigging in the trading of foreign currency pairs of the South African rand since 2007.
Law Clinics and the Clinical Law Movement in South Africa provides guidelines to assist clinicians and universities with the development of the clinical legal education curriculum, teaching methodology and the administration of a university-based law clinic. The manual was developed from contributions taken from papers and presentations given by clinicians attending workshops of the South African University Law Clinics Association (SAULCA). The book offers a wide range of guidance on many components of clinical legal education, including integrating clinical legal education with the requirements of higher education and the legal profession, setting goals and objectives for a clinical legal education programme, and an examination of the basic principles of teaching and learning as well as assessment. It also focuses on the different methods of teaching and learning, such as lecturing, supervision, legal research and mediation. The teaching portfolio covers in detail many subjects, including client communications, drafting and civil trial advocacy. The manual pays attention to the day-to-day administration of a university-based law clinic with practical support on financial and office management as well as accreditation. The unique feature of this manual is that the material covered in many sections offers practical advice and examples which will be of benefit to newly appointed law clinicians. The manual adheres to SAULCA's vision, mission and objectives, and in collaboration with its member university law clinics, SAULCA continues to investigate and explore new methods and processes which aim to improve clinical legal education and access to justice.

The last monograph to be dedicated exclusively to the law of servitudes in South African law was the 1973 edition of Hall & Kellaway: Servitudes. Since then, interesting regulatory and constitutional issues have arisen in servitude disputes. The Law of Servitudes covers the traditional areas of the law relating to servitudes, such as the nature and characteristics of servitudes, the acquisition of servitudes, the relationship between the servitude holder and the landowner (including remedies available to either party), the termination of servitudes, and includes separate chapters on praedial servitudes, personal servitudes, and statutory and public servitudes. The Law of Servitudes seeks to establish the current state of the law, seen in the context of its historical development in South Africa, as well as to consider the current position with reference to the effect of the Constitution on the development of private law.
Building on the success of the first edition, the second edition of The Law of Arbitration: South African and International Arbitration sets out the South African common law, legislation and local and international case law applicable to each stage of the arbitration cycle, including the arbitration agreement, intervention by courts pending arbitration, the appointment of and challenges to the arbitrators, the pleadings and arbitration proceedings, and the arbitration award. A brief overview of alternative dispute resolution approaches is also provided as a contextual introduction.
The second edition now incorporates the new International Arbitration Act 15 of 2017 and updates the references to local case law as well as international case law relating to the UNCITRAL Model Arbitration Law (MAL). Act 15 of 2017 cements South Africa’s position not only as a venue for international arbitration but also for the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards, making this title indispensable for South African arbitrators wanting to gain experience in international arbitration.
The following appendices are incorporated in the second edition of The Law of Arbitration:

In cases where a rule has been interpreted by the CCMA or Labour Courts, the relevant award or judgment is brought to the reader's attention. Understanding the CCMA Rules & Procedure also contains: The text of the rules for easy reference; A useful matrix of CCMA forms and their uses; Templates for rescission and condonation applications; The CCMA guidelines on misconduct arbitration; The code of conduct for CCMA commissioners.
A proper understanding of the law of contract requires far more than the mere rote learning of principles extracted from cases. Contract law is a practical subject and students will understand it best by applying contractual principles to practical, life-like scenarios. Student's guide to the law of contract fosters such an approach. It is filled with examples, exercises and problem-setting questions that increase gradually in level of complexity. This will facilitate discussion in study groups and during lectures. Spaces for the completion of exercises and summaries of prescribed cases enable students to engage actively with the learning material in one basic source. Student's guide to the law of contract can be used by lecturers as a primary teaching tool for undergraduate students to improve their students' knowledge and understanding of basic contractual principles, develop their ability to reason and stimulate their interest in the subject. Likewise, students will find it useful as an aid additional to lectures and more advanced contract law textbooks.
Trusted for over 50 years, this accessible, comprehensive and practical commentary has been written with the needs of the practitioner, the trustee and the academic jurist in mind. The sixth edition of Honore's South African Law of Trusts meticulously discusses the life of a trust from its formation to its dissolution and the problems that are typically encountered in the process. Extensively updated with reference to the latest legislation, case law, and in terms of South Africa's growing constitutional development, the book also includes a new chapter on collective investment
In hierdie werk word gekonsentreer op die gemene onderliggende beginsels van enersyds die verskillende vorme van saaklike sekerheidsregte waar telkens sprake is van 'n bepaalde saak as vermoensobjek waarop die skuldeiser 'n beperkte saaklike sekerheidsreg vestig en in sommige gevalle, danksy sodanige beperkte saaklike sekerheidsreg oor die aldus geidentifiseerde saak van die skuldenaar, 'n preferente en versekerde aanspraak op verhaal uit die opbrengs van daardie sekerheidsobjek het ter voldoening van sy uitstaande skuldvordering. 'n Skuldeiser kan andersyds ook met sy skuldenaar ooreenkom om vermoensobjekte, anders as die objekte van saaklike regte van die skuldenaar, as sekerheidsobjekte te identifiseer. Die vestiging van 'n saaklike sekerheidsreg verander nie die saldo van boedelbates van die skuldenaar waarteen sy skuldeisers verhaal kan neem nie - dit plaas hoogstens 'n kordon om die verhaalbare waarde van die geidentifiseerde sekerheidsobjekte ten gunste van die versekerde preferente skuldeiser. By persoonlike sekerheidsregte word daarteenoor verhaal geneem op bates wat aan 'n ander regsubjek as die primere skuldenaar behoort en wat dus nie deel van die saldo van die skuldenaar se bates vorm nie.
Increased international investment and accelerating economic growth in Africa in general and in Anglophone Africa mean that businesses located both within and outside these jurisdictions will increasingly demand and require advice on cross-border commercial litigation. As the scope and scale of economic activity increases, the law governing commercial litigation will have to be developed and refined to reflect Africa's importance as a commercial hub. In Commercial Litigation in Anglophone Africa, the authors, for the first time in a work of this nature, set out the broad framework of the private international law rules in operation in each of the sixteen Anglophone jurisdictions considered (Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe). The authors identify and clarify the law to be applied as it relates to: (i) civil jurisdiction over commercial disputes involving a foreign element; (ii) the enforcement of foreign judgments; and (iii) the availability and nature of the interim remedies, in each of the sixteen jurisdictions addressed.
