BOOK LAUNCH: Law and Poverty: Perspectives from South Africa and Beyond

Law and Poverty: Perspectives from South Africa and Beyond (Juta & Co, 2012) was launched at the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS) on Thursday, 31 May 2012. Attendees at the launch included the Rector and Vice Chancellor of Stellenbosch University, Prof Russel Botman, and leading constitutional law advocate Wim Trengove, SC, as well as a rich variety of academics, Deans from various law faculties in South Africa, practitioners and students.

The book was edited by Professors Sandra Liebenberg and Geo Quinot, both from the Faculty of Law at Stellenbosch University and co-directors of the SERAJ Research Project, and it contains a collection of essays that were presented at a colloquium on Law and Poverty in May 2011. The colloquium was hosted by the Faculty of Law under the banner of the University’s HOPE Project, a campus-wide programme through which the University is engaging with major societal challenges, and the auspices of the Strategic Research and Outreach Initiative: Combating Poverty, Homelessness and Socio-Economic Disadvantage under the Constitution.

Advocate Wim Trengove, SC, delivered the keynote address at the launch of Law and Poverty: Perspectives from South Africa and Beyond.
