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 Faculty of Law at the University of KwaZulu-Natal consists of two teaching centres located on the Durban and Pietermaritzburg Campuses.

To celebrate the centenary milestone, the School of Law will be hosting a series of events which will culminate in a Reunion Gala Dinner in October. 

Below is a list of planned activities and the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Managay Reddi, has pleasure in inviting the legal community, alumni and friends of the University of KwaZulu-Natal to all the planned events.
