An Update from the Faculty of Law

Tags: , , , ,

We received a recent update from the Faculty of Law by Pauline Alexander, marketing and development staff there. Here’s a choice tidbit we think you’ll find interesting.

September 19th is a date to come back on campus if you possibly can for Reunion weekend. I have been involved with some 14 reunions so far and at some point in the evening, stories about the legendary Ben surface. PJ, Hugh and I were thus delighted that Ben’s son William, who is to give the Webber Wentzel 2015 Beinart Memorial lecture, has agreed to give the after dinner speech at Reunion dinner; he has also agreed to speak at an event to say farewell to PJ in Johannesburg (probably 22rd with Cape Town on 22nd).

William has been the Rhodes Professor of Race Relations since 1997 and was the founding Director of the African Studies Centre at Oxford in 2002; he will talk to Liberalism and Legal Activism: Ben Beinart, UCT and Contemporary South Africa. We hope to have an event for PJ in London with Lewis Pugh as the speaker and will let you know detail.
