More than soccer…a world-class LibGuide to selected South African legal sources

Fans of Bafana Bafana: Kathy Darvil and Jean Davis published a new research guide focusing on South African legal sources. Our guide highlights free websites, such as: a searchable database of cases and statutes provided by the Southern African Legal Information Institute; and the website of the Constitutional Court of South Africa. It also describes fee-based sources available at BLS, such as: Sabinet’s searchable collection of South African legal journals (pdf); and JutaLaw (source of the well-known reporter: South African Law Reports and Juta’s case digest). See guide tab: Databases and subtab: Databases of Articles. TIPS for BLS faculty, students and administrators: If you do not live in BLS housing and wish to search the collection of South African legal journals off-campus, you will need to implement the BLS proxy instructions. Contact BLS Library’s reference desk ( to obtain the log-in information for Juta Law. Ngikufisela inhlanhla! (Good luck!)
