On Thursday, 23 June 2016 a delegation led by the Executive Dean from the Faculty of Law at the University of Johannesburg, Prof Letlhokwa Mpedi, collaborated with the Law Faculty of the University of Augsburg in Bavaria, Germany for a conference on a joint research project focusing on transnational impacts on law.
According to Prof Dawie De Villiers, Head of the UJ Department of Procedural Law, “The event was aimed not only at strengthening international ties but also at capacity building. The fourteen chapters UJ contributed to the project are destined be included in a book which Nomos (Germany) and Juta (South Africa) have agreed to publish jointly.”
Most of the chapters of the research project were co-authored by a senior and a more junior member of the Faculty, De Villiers added.
The chapters will be peer-reviewed by Prof Charl Hugo from the University of Johannesburg and Prof Thomas Moellers from the University of Augsburg.
The full UJ Team consisted of twenty one members, included nine professors, one associate professor, three senior lecturers, seven lecturers and an LLD student. Seventeen members of this team visited Augsburg and delivered their papers.
