“This award has inspired me to do more research. It was unexpected but all surprises coming from the University of Fort Hare are good,” – Ms Seroné Stal, a University of Fort Hare Law lecturer on her announcement as the winner of the Vice-Chancellor’s Research Excellence and Innovation Award under the Faculty junior researcher category.

Ms Stal’s research interests lie in Criminal and Labour Law. She holds LLB and LLM Degrees from North-West University.

She acts as an external examiner of LLM degrees and as moderator of assessment in other programmes. She also reviews for highly regarded journals such as the Journal of Law, Society and Development and the Potchefstroom Electronic Law Journal.

Her commitment to academic excellence is seen in her membership of the prestigious Golden Key International Honour Society, the world’s largest collegiate honour society, with links to 400 universities across the world.

“I would like to thank our Dean (Prof Mzukisi Njotini) for the nomination and those who motivated the nomination.”
