Product Description

The Law of Persons in South Africa provides a valuable source of expertise and an accessible introduction to the principles of the law of persons.

This text examines the common-law principles and legislation relating to the law of persons from a constitutional perspective. The second edition reflects a stronger focus on customary law, engaging with relevant customary law principles and values through the same constitutional lens.

The text provides thorough and informative coverage of the most current content required for an undergraduate LLB course in the law of persons, including key developments introduced by the Children’s Act 38 of 2005.

The Law of Persons in South Africa is a rich, pedagogically sound learning resource. The text supports the development of essential conceptual and academic skills such as critical thinking, reflection, logic and analysis – skills required in order to engage independently and judiciously with legal principles.
