In Monday Paper vol 25 no 15, we included an article on Prof Professor Margaret Hewett, honorary research associate in the Department of Private Law, in which we noted that she had won the Orde van Oranje-Nassau (officier), a civil award for services to the Dutch State. Hewett won the rare honour for her two-volume translation of Jacobus Voorda's (1698 - 1768) Dictata ad Ius Hodiernum (Lectures on the Contemporary Law). We incorrectly stated, though, that she received the order at the conference of the Society of Law Teachers of Southern Africa, hosted at UCT in July. The award was in fact made much earlier, on May 19, in the town of Leeuwarden in the Netherlands on the occasion of the launch of the book. We apologise for the error.
