NWU-Mafikeng Campus, Faculty of Law


Dean’s welcome

Welcome to the Faculty of Law on the Mafikeng Campus of the North-West University. We are situated in Mafikeng, the City of Goodwill and the capital of South Africa’s North West Province.

Our location in the provincial capital has positioned us for close engagement and mutually beneficial relations with the provincial government, as well as with local and traditional authorities. Adding to our competitive catchment edge and accessibility is our proximity to the Gauteng and Northern Cape provinces and the SADC countries to the north of South Africa.

Our Faculty provides excellent opportunities for studies leading to the Bachelor of Laws degree, Master of Laws and Doctor of Laws. We provide bursaries and research opportunities, clinical legal education and community engagement through our Community Law Centre.

As part and parcel of the communities we serve, the Faculty offers legal training and services that empower people and contribute to a culture of respect for democracy, human rights and good governance.
