JC de Wet enjoys the reputation of being one of the greatest South African jurists. On the occasion of the centenary of his birth, this collection of essays by prominent members of the judiciary and leading local and international scholars aims to provide new perspectives on De Wet’s life and legacy. These essays address issues that are of fundamental importance in theory and practice, most notably how the contours of key aspects of the modern South African law of contract, criminal law and the law of prescription have been shaped, and especially what role De Wet has played in these developments.

The contributors to essays on JC de Wet’s life are Laurie Ackermann, Andreas van Wyk, Peet Nienaber, Hugh Corder, Reinhard Zimmermann and Charl Hugo. De Wet’s impact on the law of contract is evaluated by Gerhard Lubbe, Jacques du Plessis, Dale Hutchison, Philip Sutherland, Tjakie Naude, Reinhard Zimmermann, Franziska Myburgh and Hennie Erasmus, while Callie Snyman and Gerhard Kemp focus on criminal law, and Max Loubser deals with the law of prescription. The essays are in English and Afrikaans.
