  • Abstract:

    I reflect on the relation between complicity and the legacy of South African jurisprudence and law, and tentatively consider continuances between the civil law tradition (Roman- Dutch common law) as well as present human rights and constitutional law. I also raise notions on reconfiliation, frailty and complex writing as possible alternatives. My aim is to think with students and colleagues and to re-imagine a legal culture and legal education that could be different from the present one.
