Graduate Lewis Pugh, aka the human polar bear, spoke at the Faculty of Law's "official" opening of the academic year recently. Pugh recalled his time at UCT, his after-lecture swims off Robben Island, and how his father had fired his imagination with stories of great explorers. He also told students of the changes he had witnessed - first-hand - in oceans around the world over 20 years. "I dream of coming back to this faculty in five years and seeing environmental lawyers being churned out," he urged. "I dream of a world that is safe, beautiful and sustainable."
