Rhodes Scholarship awarded to LLB graduate

The Faculty congratulates Ms Emily van Heerden [BA (Law) cum laude, LLB cum laude] who has been awarded a Rhodes Scholarship.  Emily graduated from the Faculty in 2015 and is currently a candidate attorney at Norton Rose Fulbright.  She hopes to pursue a career in constitutional law and plans to read for the Bachelor of Civil Laws (BCL) at Oxford University. She aims to become a constitutional law advocate: protecting and upholding constitutional rights and freedoms.

Emily writes that “this would not have been possible had it not been for the incredible education I received at Stellenbosch University, and especially from the Law Faculty. The professors and lecturers who I was fortunate enough to be lectured by and interact with during my five years in the faculty instilled in me a love of the law, of studying and of striving for justice through excellence.  The Stellenbosch Law Faculty is such a special place and I am so grateful for my years there.  I know that I can go to Oxford confident in my ability to cope with the academic pressures there thanks to the high standard of law at Stellenbosch.”
