Student Profile(s)

Mookamedi Morwaagole

The legislative studies programme is an innovative course which caters for the lacuna in academic institutions around the world in much-needed training in legislative studies. I am glad to have taken part in this programme and the experience I have gained will transform me into a better drafter. The course is professionally organised, from the material offered through to teaching methods applied, and I would recommend this LLM to all drafters, regardless of their experience and background.
