UCT Law@work is a self-funding unit that presents short courses, seminars and workshops on topical legal issues.

Originally known as the Professional Development Project, it was the brainchild of the then Dean of the Faculty, Hugh Corder, and has undergone a number of changes since it was established in 1999.

It began with just one staff member in a half-day post, then progressed to a full day post with Irèna Wasserfall as the manager.

PEP, as it was affectionately known at the time, underwent a change in its branding in 2008 and became UCT Law@work: Professional Development Project. Since the middle of 2011, Law@work has been growing - first to a team of three, and eventually reaching its current size of eight team members. 

Some of the courses include:

  • Administrative justice
  • Artificial intelligence and bitcoin
  • Bullying in the workplace
  • CISCA and hedge fund regulations
  • Compliance management
  • Commercial and court-aligned mediation training
  • Corporate governance          
  • Cybercrime and information security law        
  • Direct marketing regulations
  • Environmental law
  • Effective legal writing
  • Government contracts and procurement law
  • Labour law in South Africa
  • Legislative drafting
  • Medical negligence and health sector mediation training
  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Pension fund law updates      
  • Risk management using effective legal contract strategies
  • Sexual harassment in the workplace
  • Software law
  • Sports law   
  • The Protection of Personal Information: a masterclass
  • Trusts         
  • Twin Peaks and the Conduct of Financial Institutions Bill
  • Whistleblowing in the workplace

We are continually introducing new courses, examples of which are Chinese law and investments in Africa, Muslim marriage contracts, plus our popular cannabis law seminar.

We are often called upon to compile customised courses for various institutions, where training is required for groups within those institutions. You are welcome to contact us in this regard.
