    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    Constitutional Law is one of the most important subjects for anyone, law student or otherwise, to understand how the law works in South Africa. The course explains the functioning of the different spheres of government and how organs of state and government institutions must account for their actions by complying with the provisions of our Supreme Constitution. This course should be taken by any student with an interest in South African law in general as it provides invaluable information and training for students to recognize instances where the law is not complied with.

    Course highlights:

    I learnt about how a constitutional democracy means that we cannot merely allow the rule of the majority to control our law as this would fail to protect the important minority segments of our society. It also taught me the important dilemma of constitutional law and the role of the judiciary as this sphere of government consists entirely of elite individuals who are given the power to decide on matters that affect the working class majority.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You need to make sure that you follow the reading prescribed for each section or you will fall behind and miss important nuances in the topics required for basic understanding. The course was very labour intensive, I would advise forming discussion groups and discussing the issues of each topic at least once a week.
