It is tremendously exciting to be a scholar of constitutional law in South Africa. Not only do we have an extremely progressive Constitution and renowned Constitutional Court jurisprudence on rights analysis, we also have highly analytical and critical academic discourse on different constitutional issues. Academic discourse is an aspect that I find extremely necessary for the development of constitutional law in a constitutional democracy.
