This year marks 100 years since women were admitted to the legal profession. As part of the commemorative events recognising how women have progressed in legal academia, in the legal profession and the judiciary, the Society of Law Teachers of Southern African (SLTSA) will be profiling female legal academics who have made a significant contribution to this field in academia or have gone on to impact the legal profession as advocates, attorneys and even judges. We would like to acknowledge and celebrate these women who have achieved great milestones and to also inspire other female law teachers to enter and achieve success in the various legal fields so that women can continue to make their mark. In the first of our series recognising inspiring female legal academics in Southern Africa we feature Professor Puseletso Letete.
