UCT student Timothy Fish-Hodgson was runner-up in the LLB Category of this year's Ismail Mahomed Law Reform Essay Competition, hosted by the South African Law Reform Commission and sponsored by Juta Law Publishers.

With his essay, Reasonableness as a comparative heuristic, polycentricity, separation of powers and socio-economic rights jurisprudence, Fish-Hodgson took home an Incredible Connection voucher to the value of R5 000.

Named in honour of the late Chief Justice Mahomed, the competition encourages critical legal writing by bachelor's (LLB) and master's (LLM) students to explore the links between law reform, human rights and the rule of law.
