Professor Erika de Wet, SARChI Chair of International Constitutional Law and ICLA Fellow, has received a prestigious A2 National Research Foundation (NRF) rating.
A proud Dean André Boraine from the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria, congratulated the following TuksLaw staff members this afternoon on their newly acquired NRF ratings:
Prof Erika de Wet, SARChI Professor of International Constitutional Law, Prof Annelize Nienaber (Department of Public Law) and Dr Femida Cassim (Department of Mercantile Law).
“Hearty congratulations to our colleagues on their NRF ratings. Let us celebrate with them!
Well done Erika with the A2 rating. Erika is our first permanent full-time staff member to achieve an A rating! The A2 NRF rating indicates that ‘a researcher in this group is recognised by the overriding majority of reviewers as a leading scholar in his/her field internationally for the high quality and impact (either wide or confined) of his/her recent research outputs.’
Our first time applicants also did very well: Annelize Nienaber received a C2 rating and Femida Cassim a Y2 rating!
We are very proud of you.”
