October deadline for four universities to submit improvement LLB degree plans

The Ccouncil on Higher Education (CHE) says four universities stand to lose their LLB degree accreditation because their standards are not high enough.

North West University, Walter Sisulu University, University of South Africa and the University of the Free State have been found to have major issues with their Bachelor of Law programmes.

CHE chair Prof Themba Mosia, says the four universities have been given notice of withdrawal. That doesn't mean they cannot offer the degree but it means if they want to continue offering the law degree they have to submit an improvement plan to the council by October 2017.

The four that have been identified have to act immediately on some of the serious issues relating to the program design and other criteria.
