It will appeal to those who have a strong sense of justice and wish to transform society. It will also appeal to those who like to blend their problem solving skills with their tenacity in the business or government arena.  

What entry requirements will I need to study this degree?

To be registered as a candidate for this LLB degree you must have satisfied the following admission requirements: 

- NSC with Bachelor entry (or the equivalent), will have written the NBT AQL test, and have met the admission point AP-score of 26 or more. Note however that all students with an AP score of 26-27 and/or an NBT AL score of less than 64 will have to attend and complete a compulsory  developmental module.
