I would like to welcome you to the Faculty of Law for the 2018 academic year. This year will once again, on various levels, be an exciting one. The political changes, weather, economic realities, free higher education, international developments and many other factors will ensure that we are not bored.
One of our mail goals for 2018 is the implementation of the LLB Improvement Plan. It will take hard work from the lecturers and students alike. I have no doubt that we will successfully implement it to the advantage of every one. Together herewith important matters like being inclusive, to celebrate and enjoy our diversity, to better integrate our activities across campuses, to implement the language policy at Potchefstroom and many more, need to be achieved.
I trust that 2018 will be a very successful year for you. You are the master of your own destiny. Grab the opportunities that come your way, enjoy it fully and make a success thereof.
Prof Stephen de la Harpe
