Posted by Tayana

Government  has gazetted a new Statutory Instrument, 11 of 2016, which recognises the University of Zimbabwe and the Midlands State University as the only local institutions producing law students that do not require to sit for conversion examinations before they start practising.

The regulation replaces Statutory Instrument 30C of 2007 that only recognised law graduates from the University of Zimbabwe as suitable candidates for practice without sitting for a conversion examination. The statutory instrument reads,

The degrees specified in the schedule are declared to be designated legal qualifications for the purposes of the Legal Practitioners (Council for Legal Education) Rules, 1992, published in Statutory Instrument 447 of 1992.

Other institutions offering law degrees include Great Zimbabwe University and Zimbabwe Ezekiel Guti University.
