Abstract

It is with great joy that I, along with the editorial committee, present to you, reader, the 2016 Pretoria Student Law Review. I believe it is only fitting that the tenth edition is one that portrays, very clearly, a new chapter in the life of this student publication.This year has not only been a challenging one for students, staff and parents but also for the citizens of South Africa as a whole. It is thus with even greater pleasure that we offer our humble contribution to legal academia. As the editorial board we are extremely proud of successfully completing this most important tenth edition in such tumultuous times.Many challenges have both been overcome and discovered in this year’s exciting journey of creating this publication. Every year experiences different authors with varied contributions and themes but this tenth edition is one which illustrates a certain gusto and determination on the part of those who worked towards its completion. With that said, I would like to thank the authors for their submissions and tireless effort to meet (often exceedingly pressed) deadlines. My thanks also goes to the artist for this edition, Marijke Benade and Lizette Hermann for her support during this particularly unique time; Prof Anton Kok & Prof Andre Boraine, for their support in various ways and on short notice. But of course, thank you to the editorial team of 2016. Abel Maluleka, Abrie van der Merwe, Carin Cross, Daniel Badenhorst, Larisse Prinsen and Roxanne Gilbert; without your willingness to assist, there would be nothing between these pages. Thank you to Sarah Burford, in particular, who is not only part of the editorial team but who greatly assisted me with concluding edits and proofreading.This year’s edition includes a diverse range of articles. Some are close to home while others grapple with issues abroad. From feminism & queer theory, to child rights, sports law, free higher education, and of course, the language debate, our authors have ensured that every reader will find something to both challenge and broaden their minds.I do hope that you enjoy this precious bundle of what the students at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, have to offer.Editor in chief: Cara FurnissEditors: Daniel Badenhorst, Sarah Burford, Carin Cross, Roxanne Gilbert, Abel Maluleka, Larisse Prinsen & Abrie van der Merwe

Abstract

Dear Professor: A Chronicle of Absences is a collection of over two hundred often involuntarily comical emails in which students excuse themselves for missing class. The result is a satirical yet unexpectedly sympathetic collective portrait of modern-day academia where both students and teachers feel pressured to comply with the impositions of hyper-connectivity.

Abstract

The second volume of the African Higher Education Dynamics Series brings together the research of an international network of higher education scholars with interest in higher education and student politics in Africa. Most authors are early career academics who teach and conduct research in universities across the continent, and who came together for a research project and related workshops and a symposium on student representation in African higher education governance. The book includes theoretical chapters on student organising, student activism and representation; chapters on historical and current developments in student politics in Anglophone and Francophone Africa; and in-depth case studies on student representation and activism in a cross-section of universities and countries. The book provides a unique resource for academics, university leaders and student affairs professionals as well as student leaders and policy-makers in Africa and elsewhere.

Abstract

About the publicationWords fail to describe what an honour it has been to have been part of the ninth edition of the Pretoria Student Law Review. The sense of satisfaction is overwhelming in this being the third edition I have had the privilege to be a part of. Having spent three years as part of this publication I cannot begin to describe and expand upon all that I have learnt in this time, but one thing which I guarantee is the bright and prosperous future of the legal profession of South Africa. With each successive edition I see a thirst and hunger for knowledge from law students, each year those yearnings becoming more intense and providing us with the most thought provoking and well-founded articles. The desire to challenge the status quo, to reject the notions of complacency and outright refusal of facile thought is truly something all these writers should be proud of and us along with them. To read and to write is the essence of not only thought, but of life itself.Editor in chief: Alicia AllisonEditors: Alexia Katsiginis and Michael PotterTable of ContentsEditors’ noteAlicia AllisonFrom the Dean’s deskAndre BoraineChallenges to peaceful protest in Nigeria: The use of forceAdebayo Okeowo(Wo)man in the mirror — A reflection: Law’s influence on society, identity and feminismDevon-Lee AndriesThe impossibility to be lost in transformationJJ van der WaltThe political constructions of justice: Reviewing Antjie Krog’s Country of my skull and application of African jurisprudenceMarko SvicevicThe effect of the South African media on HIV/AIDS awarenessNicole KingA new ‘ray of light’ in socio-economic rights jurisprudence?

Abstract

This publication contains original research targeting scientific specialists in the field of education. Not only is the disposition of its research endeavours grounded on a philosophical basis, it is also embedded in the empirical. The research methodology of each chapter emanates from applicable philosophical assumptions in the form of an applicable theoretical and conceptual framework. The latter forms a firm basis for the application of sound empiricism. Both qualitative and quantitative empirical approaches were alternatively applied in the various chapters. The content of each chapter was meticulously analysed before being finally accepted. In response to the call for chapters, 26 abstracts were received. After evaluation of these abstracts, 24 authors were granted the opportunity of submitting full manuscripts for evaluation. Subsequently the latter were submitted to a rigorous double-blind peer review process. These manuscripts were submitted to at least two or three specialist reviewers in their particular fields of specialisation. All of these review reports are preserved and kept for enquiry and assessment. The content of the current book was chosen from a selection for a 2014 publication which did not obtain a subsidy from the DHET, titled Nuances of Teaching Learning and Research, published by AndCork Publishers. After careful re-evaluation, a much smaller number of chapters was selected, substantially reworked and considerably extended, after which the chapters were again submitted to a double-blind peer review process. Ultimately, of the 26 abstracts originally received only 10 were finally accepted as suitable for publication in the current volume. Finally, in terms of the requirements set by clause 6.12 of the Department of Higher Education and Training policy on reworked publications, this book now contains more than 50% original content not published before. The content of this book adds to the body of scholarly knowledge in education. In his evaluation of the book, Acting Executive Dean, Faculty of Education and Training, Professor Akpovire Oduaran, made the following remarks: To a large extent, the ideas put together in this book have come from data generated not just from literature found in books and journals but actual interactions with educators and the learning environment. So then, what the reader is offered in this volume is the articulation of ideas that have been interrogated, structured and presented in surprisingly simplistic and yet incisive and academically enriching content that can match the standards of scholarship that is available in the Western World. Yet, what makes this book so welcome, relevant and timely, is the fact that it is built around Afrocentric theories and practices such as one may find in imported literature.
