Pretoria Student Law Review (PSLR)


The Pretoria Student Law Review (PSLR) is a student-driven initiative that provides an interactive forum for students, academics and legal professionals to discuss topical legal matters. The approach is experimental, investigative, sometimes challenging.  Not conventional.

The first volume was published at the beginning of 2008 (2007 edition), and the second (2008 edition), third (2009 edition), fourth (2010 edition) and fifth (2011 edition) volumes are now available in hard copy and electronic format.

Copies of the PSLR are distributed to all the law faculties in South Africa and many universities in Africa. Also, copies are sent to judges and law firms around the country.

South Africa, the continent and the world at large are on the cusp of a new era - socially, economically and politically. With the uncertainties that the future holds, we as law students have a duty to utilise the unique position that we are in to challenge the status quo. University is about more than an academic transcript. We must not be complacent. We must strive for the enforcement of the rule of law. We must question. We must demand answers. And we must be relentless in our search for truth and justice.

The PSLR provides a forum for critical thinking, argument and debate. We look forward to hearing what you have to say!
