Symposium to focus on lawman Moseneke

05 December 2016

UCT and Wits University will jointly host a symposium in Cape Town on 7 December that focuses on the life and work of retired Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke.

Moseneke, one of the country’s most revered legal minds, served as Deputy Chief Justice under justices Pius Langa, Sandile Ngcobo and Mogoeng Mogoeng. This came after years spent in the anti-apartheid trenches with the Pan-Africanist Congress, including a decade imprisoned on Robben Island.

He received an honorary doctorate of laws from UCT in 2015.

Three core areas of Moseneke’s life and work will underpin the discussion:

  • Doctrinal Transformation? Constitutional Adjudication and the State of the Law
  • ‘Freedom Fighters and Revolutionaries’? Law, Activism and Justice
  • Drawing the Line: Separation of Powers, the Democratic will and Judicial Public Engagement.

Contact Abigail Calata for more information about the symposium.
