New centre for legal research
26 February 2009
The new Centre for Legal and Applied Research (CLEAR) aims to foster independent research and synergies both within the Faculty of Law, and with other faculties. So explained Professor Hanri Mostert, the faculty's director of research, at the centre's launch in early February. This independent and yet inter-disciplinary approach was very evident in the presentations of CLEAR's nine research units at the opening. Current projects span everything from the erosion of 'decent work' to public policing, refugee rights to judicial ethics, climate change to biofuels.
