Education‎ > ‎

University of the Witwatersrand, Oliver Schreiner School of Law: Bachlor of Laws (LLB)

University of the Witwatersrand
LLB 4 year, Law, English
2009 – 2013

Grade: I qualified for my degree in 2013, and have graduated Bachelor of Laws LLB.
My grandparents on my mother's side, my mother, and sister attended Wits. I determined also to attend this esteemed educational institution. 

I was accepted to the most difficult law degree, the LLB or Legum Baccalaureus. 

In first year I was unanimously elected class representative in Global English Literature and Film by several hundred students. I was also the first ever First year to be elected to the executive of a specific political party on campus. In subsequent years I was continually elected to positions of responsibility and leadership. 

While I did engage in sports: tennis and Kayaking among others, I preferred to do so outside of campus. I have a K1 River Kayak, and also joined a tennis club outside of university.

I consistently spent much of my free time bettering myself and my general and specific knowledge outside of university, including by means of on-line learning via coursera, and I additionally edited and reported for SACNS as a journalist.
Activities and Societies: DASO, ACTS
