Dear colleagues and students
Following my communication of last Friday regarding the constitution of a special executive task team to assist with specific challenges that we anticipate will arise this year, I would like to advise you of the appointment of Professor Hugh Corder as special assistant to Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Francis Petersen.
Professor Corder will take responsibility for the following functions, while Professor Petersen leads the task team (with effect from 1 February 2016):
Professor Corder has been Professor of Public Law at the University of Cape Town since 1987 and a Fellow of the University since 2004. He was the Dean of the Faculty of Law from January 1999 to December 2008. His main teaching and research interests fall within the field of Constitutional and Administrative Law, particularly judicial appointments and accountability, and mechanisms to further administrative accountability.
Dr Max Price
