The broad research objectives of the Law Faculty are:
- To foster and maintain a research culture informed by national and international standards, and
- To provide high quality research training programs that suitably prepare candidates for careers as researchers.
The Law Faculty has a very active research program, and is one of the highest ranked faculties in the country in terms of research publications per staff. Research performance measured in high output is central to the achievement of the Law Faculty's mission. This is reflected in the number of scholarly books and refereed journal articles produced by Law Faculty staff.
