MetadataShow full item record
In order to research the South African law and understand how legal processes must transpire in contemporary South Africa, a historical perspective is firstly required. Historical knowledge gained assists both the academic and legal practitioner, engaged in legal research, to understand the development of South Africa’s legal system as well as the external and internal influences affecting it. An inclusive perspective also empowers legal researchers to move beyond traditional research approaches, reaching for new frontiers. This article casts light on an integrative multidisciplinary research approach as a possible future perspective on legal research.
