NWU SCC member scores big at Faculty of Law awards

Leo Maphosa, a member of the Student Campus Council (SCC) and third-year law student at the North-West University’s (NWU’s) campus in Mahikeng, scored big at the Faculty of Law Prestige awards. This event took place on 16 March 2018 at the Sanlam Auditorium on the campus in Potchefstroom.

Leo, who is the academic affairs officer of the SCC, received three awards.

Not only did he take first place in the NWU Juta Mock Trial competition, but he was also awarded the prize for best performance in Law of Delict across all three campuses. He was also recognised for the role he played as deputy chairperson of the 2016/17 Law Student Council.

“It’s always a humbling experience to be recognised for one’s efforts,” says Leo. “This motivates me for the long road ahead, and with the right attitude and commitment I will reach my goals.”

The annual Faculty of Law Prestige Awards recognises Mock Trial finalists, best performers in Law subjects as well as those with averages above 75%. It further recognises the contributions of the Law Student Council of the previous academic year.
