Out of the 2015/16 nationwide student protest action has come the
long-overdue challenge for academia to assess and reconsider
critically the role academics play in maintaining and perpetuating
exclusive social structures and discourse in schools and faculties
in the higher education landscape in South Africa. Decolonisation
and Africanisation of Legal Education in South Africa proposes
possible starting points on the subject, and the roles, challenges
and questions that legal academia face in the quest to decolonise
and Africanise legal education in South Africa. It explores the
potential role of the Constitution in decolonising and Africanising
legal education. Furthermore, the book discusses important
contextual factors in relation to decolonising clinical legal
education. Decolonisation and Africanisation form a much more
nuanced project in the continuous process of development and
reflection to be undertaken by all law academics together with
their relevant institutions and students. The book ultimately
highlights the importance of decolonising the law itself. This
timely and important work lays a foundation that will hopefully
inspire many more publications and debates aimed at transforming
our legal education.
