Sachs on uBuntu and the law
17 April 2009
Justice Albie Sachs of the Constitutional Court was the guest speaker at the most recent lecture in the Faculty of Law's uBuntu Project Speakers Series, held on 15 April. Sachs spoke broadly on uBuntu - the much-discussed African concept on human relations - and its relation to the law. The uBuntu Project, initiated by the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Studies, is led at UCT by Professor Drucilla Cornell of the Department of Private Law. Cornell's work centres around customary law, indigenous values and dignity jurisprudence.
