Becoming a professor of law in South Africa


jireh87
I am a licensed attorney in Texas and I am planning to attain an LLM in the future (3-5 years). I would like to do so in South Africa in the hopes of becoming a professor of law there. Can anyone direct me to any websites/organisations that are comparable to the AALS in the US? Also, will SA schools accept my JD and allow me to enter an LLM program?

Hi,

A JD stands for Juris Doctor. It is a postgraduate law degree in USA intended for those who wish to become lawyers. I think it is a good idea for you to do an LLM since most lecturers and professors in South Africa have them.Most South African universities will have no problem in accepting you to study for an LLM programme.You just have to have a high average in you academic transcript. To become a professor in South Africa you will need to have numerous published articles under your belt in order to be attractive to law faculties. I hope my advice will help you in some way.
