Law House is committed to the students of the Faculty of Law. The 2013/14 Law House Executive Committee strives to create and maintain unity and celebrate diversity whilst maintaining a healthy balance between academic, social, sporting and community outreach events for our members.
Apart from providing our members with an easily accessible system of past papers, we also coordinate sporting events such as hockey, volleyball, soccer, rugby and netball. Community outreach projects are important to us and we aim to get law students involved in their communities, making them aware of the socioeconomic needs and the importance of ploughing back into the community. And then there are the many social events to relax and get to know one another… celebrating student life to the full!
Our objective for this term of office is to dedicate our time to the students of this Faculty and to create an atmosphere indicative of the reputation that the Faculty is famous for. We shall provide our members with regular news and updates to ensure that our time at the Faculty of Law at the University of Pretoria is an unforgettable one!
For any information come see us at Law 1-44 next to the Law Kiosk! You're always welcome! See you soon!
