Admission requirements

Subject to the stipulations of the General Regulation in the Yearbook, a candidate for the LLD programme must be in possession of at least an LLM degree, or an equivalent degree from a foreign university.

Foreign qualifications are subject to SAQA evaluation.

The Faculty Board may grant exemption from the above conditions.

A candidate will only be admitted to the LLD programme if he/she complies with a standard of competence in applicable subjects as determined by the head of department, also taking into account the candidate’s academic record and any applicable experience.

A candidate will only be admitted to the LLD programme if the Faculty can provide a suitable supervisor in light of the applicant’s preliminary research proposal.

Duration of study

The criterion for the award of the doctorate is original research. The degree will not be conferred until work equivalent to at least two years of study has been completed.

Main curriculum information

If admitted, a student can register immediately for the LLD programme. The following two modules must be registered for and completed within one year of registration:

1. Research methodology (RHP 902) offered by the Faculty of Law.
(If the student can show sufficient evidence of competence in research skills the head of department, on recommendation of the supervisor, may exempt the student from this module.)
2. Research proposal and oral defence of the research proposal (RHP 904).
An oral defence of the research proposal including an assessment of the feasibility of the thesis statement, research question or questions and argument to be developed in the LLD thesis is required. A draft research proposal including a bibliography that covers the main fields to be covered by the study, the thesis statement, research question or questions and argument must be sent to the examination panel three weeks prior to the oral defence. (Such a draft research proposal must first be approved by the supervisor.) The student must convince the adjudicating panel of the feasibilityof the topic and his or her knowledge of the research subject and ability to conduct the research. Where required by the panel, the draft proposal must be further reworked in light of the comments at the oral defence and a final proposal submitted to the satisfaction of the supervisor before the student may embark on the writing of the thesis. (No exemption can be granted from this requirement).
