Centenary Events 2010
The teaching of law in the province of KwaZulu-Natal began in 1910 in Pietermaritzburg when the Natal University College was established. Today the School of Law at the University of KwaZulu-Natal consists of two teaching centres located on the Durban and Pietermaritzburg Campuses.
