“I am so grateful for the opportunity to complete my LLM as part of the Socio-Economic Rights and Administrative Justice Research Project. It has been enriching and encouraging to be a part of SERAJ. My fellow SERAJ members are wonderful people and I have enjoyed learning about the exciting research projects they are busy with in the field of socio-economic rights and administrative justice and taking part in seminars on a variety of topics. The advice and support from the doctoral students who have competed their LLMs is invaluable. I have also had the privilege of exposure to visiting academics and a thesis supervisor of the highest calibre. I am proud to join the ranks of the SERAJ Alumni.”
