In this article it is argued that Roman law and legal history should remain part of the LLB curriculum of South African universities - at least those which aspire to develop wellrounded, confident and educated graduates who can hold their own in an increasingly globalised society. In fact, both the SAQA minimum outcomes for the LLB degree and the practice requirements for LLB graduates (as indicated in the CHE report on the LLB curriculum 2010) place a high premium on a sound understanding of the fundamental principles of South African law and the ability to do research. SAQA mentions in particular that LLB graduates should be able to do comparative and legal historical research. A knowledge of Roman law and legal history is essential for the development of these competencies.
