The first issue of the Judgment Commentary Unit (JCU), a product of the legal division of the Southern African Institute for Policy and Research, is now available online for download. Following in the footsteps of similar initiatives in other regions, the JCU provides commentaries on select judgments of terminal courts (and in exceptional cases, non-terminal courts) in the Southern African Region. The purpose of the unit is to raise the discourse around the jurisprudence of these important courts and in so doing, stimulate debate on topics of legal significance and relevance.
New commentaries will be made individually available and searchable here on the JCU page, as well as for download in full issues, to be published bi-annually. The first full issue (Vol. 1, No. 1) can be downloaded here:
